Last Modified: May 17, 2019

You can use the Buses tab to add, remove, and configure buses for the pattern generator. Access the Buses tab by clicking the icon in the Pattern Generator section and selecting Buses.

Setting Description
Status Enables or disables signal generation on the bus lines.
Name Name of the bus line.
Mode Type of the output signal. When Mode is Custom, the Pattern Generator generates the signal defined in the data file(s) you import.
Bus lines Table containing bus lines that you can add, remove, or define the name for.

After you add bus lines to the table, you must click one bus line to enable the corresponding Source file and Source file channel settings.

Source file Path to the data file that you import. You can import TDMS files only and the files must contain digital waveform data only. You can load TDMS files generated by LabVIEW or the Logic Analyzer and Pattern Generator in the NI ELVIS III.
Source file channel Channel you want to import. If Source file contains data of multiple channels, you can use Source file channel to select which channel of data you want to import to the Pattern Generator.
Update rate Number of samples that the instrument generates per second. Selecting the first line in Bus lines and selecting a file in Source file auto-populates Update rate with the update rate defined by the source file. When you select lines except for the first line in Bus lines and select a file in Source file, Update rate does not change. You can change the update rate by entering a new value.
