Outputting A Clock Signal, Digital Waveforms In General


Go to solution Solved by JColvin,

Question

Hello, 

How do I write a clock signal or digital signal in labview to a digital port? I'm using an EExplorer and I am already using my two analog waveform ports, and I'd like to output a digital waveform and clock signal. I understand how to use the "DWF Dig Write" VI, but I need to output a high frequency clock signal. Thank you for all the help!

Hi @James B,

I received the following response from another engineer more familiar with LabVIEW and Analog Discovery 2 integration.

Hello James,

If you would like to do more advanced stuff, like high speed signal generation, you could use the WaveForms SDK. Check this guide: https://reference.digilentinc.com/reference/instrumentation/digital-discovery/controlling-digital-discovery-with-labview/start <JColvin's note: the guide is is written with the Digital Discovery in mind but works for other Instrumentation boards as well>

For your project I recommend you check the FDwfDigitalOut and FDwfDigitalIO functions in the WaveForms SDK Reference Manual (https://reference.digilentinc.com/reference/software/waveforms/waveforms-sdk/reference-manual). You can also check the examples in the WaveFormsSDK/samples/py library in the WaveForms installation path.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Thanks,
JColvin
