How do I use the HPE1432A as an arbitrary waveform generator in LabVIEW?

How do I use the HPE1432A as an arbitrary waveform generator in LabVIEW?

The obvious VI (writeSrcBuffer ?) gives the usual meaningless error. I've tried the HP website, but they appear to deny all knowledge of the card's existence.

Thanks

We have an instrument driver for the HPE1432 available on our website at http://www.ni.com/idnet . I am not sure if it is compatible with the HPE1432A or not, though. This driver was written in LabWindows/CVI, so you will have to convert it to LabVIEW to be able to use it. This can be done by using "Convert CVI fp file" function.

I found what my problem was. The 'Convert CVI fp file' function was creating LabVIEW VIs that had errors in them.The enum values that are passed to the DLLs occasionally require a look-up table in the VI, and this table (integer array) is defaulted to empty, so invalid values are ALWAYS passed to the DLL. This is probably a problem with LabVIEW 5.1 or the version of the driver that I had.

Thanks for your help, anyway.

Hi there, I'm a student on a work placement and I was wondering if you'd managed to solve this problem as I'm having similar difficulties, only with reading data from this card. In MAX it's showing as an unknown resource and says that it can be accessed but not configured.

If you have found a solution I'd appreciate any pointers you could give.

Thanks,
