NI 5793 CLIP

Last Modified: May 17, 2017

  1. NI 5793 CLIP This CLIP generates one sample per clock cycle at a default sample rate of 250 MHz. You can set a lower sample rate by using an external Sample Clock. This CLIP provides access to I and Q data for one RF transmit channel. The CLIP also provides a User Command interface for common configurations of the base-band clocking, programmable attenuator, transmit filters, LO filters, and RF path which includes the ability to import and export the LO. The baseband clocking can be configured using one of the following settings:
    • Internal Sample Clock
    • Internal Sample Clock locked to an external Reference Clock through the CLK IN connector
    • External Sample Clock through the CLK IN connector
    • Internal Sample Clock locked to an external Reference Clock through the Sync Clock
  2. NI 5793 Multiple Sample CLIP This CLIP generates two samples per clock cycle at a clock rate that is half the sample rate. This CLIP provides access to I and Q data for one RF transmit channel. The CLIP also provides a User Command interface for common configurations of the base-band clocking, programmable attenuator, transmit filters, LO filters, and RF path which includes the ability to import and export the LO. The baseband clocking can be configured using one of the following settings:
    • Internal Sample Clock
    • Internal Sample Clock locked to an external Reference Clock through the CLK IN connector
    • External Sample Clock through the CLK IN connector
    • Internal Sample Clock locked to an external Reference Clock through the Sync Clock

This CLIP also contains a FAM Registers Bus interface, which is a low-level bus interface that directly programs registers on all programmable devices, such as the digital-to-analog converter (DAC). Programming registers on these devices allows for more advanced configuration.

You cannot configure the LO using the User Command interface. Use the FAM Registers Bus interface to program the LO synthesizer, then use the User Command interface to configure the LO filters.
