High-Speed Digital I/O

Supplier: National Instruments Australia

National Instruments high-speed digital I/O instruments offer advanced interfacing and test features for today's digital and mixed-signal systems.


National Instrumetns high-speed digital I/O products provide a high-performance, flexible exprience for digital communication and testing with up to 1Gbit/s data rates. You can synchronize multiple modules to create a high channel count digital system with subnanosecond synchronization. The NI -HSDIO driver is easy to use software for your digital testing needs, and the LabVIEW FPGA Module and NI FlexRIO platform offer the flexibility for protocal aware testing. With high speed digital I/O products, you can perform

  • bit error rate testing (BERT)
  • Protocol emulation and testing
  • Timing tests (set up and hold time)
  • DC per-pin parametric measurements
  • Logic analysis/pattern generation
  • Voltage threshold testing
  • Scripting for looping andl linking of multiple waveforms with zero idle time.

NI PCI-6542- Digital Waveform Generator/Analyzer for Interfacing Applications

  •     100 MHz maximum clock rate
  •     Compatible with 5.0, 3.3, 2.5, and 1.8 V (software-selectable)
  •     32 channels with per-channel direction control
  •     1, 8, or 64 Mb/channel onboard memory
  •     NI Synchronization and Memory Core (SMC) device
  •     Interactive waveform and script editor software

The National Instruments PCI-6542 is a 100 MHz digital waveform generator/analyzer for interfacing to digital electronics. This board features 32 channels with per-channel direction control and deep onboard memory with triggering and pattern sequencing.

Through the NI-HSDIO driver, you can configure the board for 5.0, 3.3, 2.5, or 1.8 V logic. You also can use the NI PCI-6542 with the NI Digital Waveform Editor, an interactive software tool for creating and editing digital waveforms. With SMC, you can create mixed-signal test systems with digitizers, arbitrary waveform generators, and other digital waveform generator/analyzers, or you can synchronize multiple digital devices to build low-skew multichannel systems for interfacing to high-pin-count digital ICs and electronics.
