PPMU Configure Voltage Limits (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: September 14, 2017

    Specifies the voltage limit high, or high clamp voltage (VCH), and voltage limit low, or low clamp voltage (VCL), for the specified pins when forcing current.

    You must call the PPMU Source node for changes to the PPMU configuration to take effect, even if the PPMU is already sourcing.

    datatype_icon

    session in

    Instrument session obtained from the niDigital Initialize with Options node.

    datatype_icon

    channel list

    List of channel names or pin names. Do not pass a mix of channel names and pin names.

    An empty string denotes all digital pattern instrument channels.

    Multisite Considerations and Syntax

    Pin names and pin groups apply to all enabled sites, unless the pin name explicitly specifies the site. You can specify a pin in a specific site using the form siteN/pinName, where N is the site number. This node ignores pins that are not mapped to the digital pattern instrument.

    datatype_icon

    voltage limit high

    The nominal voltage at the pin at which the high side voltage clamp activates when the PPMU forces current to the DUT.

    datatype_icon

    voltage limit low

    The nominal voltage at the pin at which the low side voltage clamp activates when the PPMU forces current to the DUT.

    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

    session out

    Handle that identifies the session in all subsequent NI-Digital node calls.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Forcing current using the PPMU Configure Output node

    When forcing current by setting the PPMU Configure Output node to DC Current, the voltage is clamped to the specified voltage limits. Select the smallest voltage limits appropriate for the DUT.

    If the voltage required by the DUT exceeds the specified voltage limits, the current output may not meet the specified current level. Choose larger voltage limits as needed and appropriate for the DUT.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
