Configure DMA FIFO (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: January 12, 2018

Specifies the capacity, or depth, in elements of the Host to Target FIFO.

Select the FIFO you want to use from the FIFO menu on the Item tab.

connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

reference in

Reference to an FPGA VI.

Obtain a reference using the Open FPGA VI Reference node.

datatype_icon

depth

Number of elements specified for the host-side FIFO of the DMA channel.

Default: 0

datatype_icon

reference out

Reference to an FPGA VI.

datatype_icon

actual depth

Number of elements in the host FIFO of the DMA buffer.

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
