How do I Configure the Adapter Module Onboard Clock Frequency of an NI 6587R?



Primary Software:
Primary Software Version: 3.5.1
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

Problem:
When I open the run the example for the NI-6587R, the clock frequency exported does not update. How do I configure the adapter module onboard clock frequency for the NI 6587R?

Solution:
The generation examples that ship with the NI FlexRIO Adapter Module Support 2.1 did not configure the adapter module onboard clock properly. The Onboard_Clock_Ready signal must be checked and ready before writing new configuration data to the onboard clock chip. The following code snippet shows how to properly set the adapter module onboard clock for the NI 6587R.



To get the latest version of the correct code in the examples, copy the Host VIs attached to this KB to the following directories where xxx is the version of LabVIEW you have installed (i.e. 2011)
  • NI 6587 Continuous Generation - Export Clock (Host).vi should be copied to:
    <Program Files>\National Instruments\LabVIEW xxx\examples\FlexRIO\IO Modules\NI 6587\ContGenExportClk
  • NI 6587 Serial Generation - Export Clock (Host).vi should be copied to:
    <Program Files>\National Instruments\LabVIEW xxx\examples\FlexRIO\IO Modules\NI 6587
    \SerialGenExportClk
Future versions of the NI FlexRIO Adapter Module Support will install the corrected Host VIs for the generation examples that show how to configure the adapter module onboard clock.
