Configure Reference Clock (G Dataflow)

    Last Modified: September 27, 2017

    Configures the Reference clock.

    Use this node when you are using the On Board Clock as a Sample clock and you want the Sample clock to be phase-locked to a reference signal. Phase-locking the Sample clock to a Reference clock prevents the Sample clock from losing alignment with the Reference clock. The driver ignores the Reference clock rate input when the Reference clock source is PXI Clock.

    datatype_icon

    session in

    Instrument session obtained from the Initialize Acquisition Session node, the Initialize Generation Session node, or the Initialize External Calibration node.

    datatype_icon

    clock source

    The specified phase-lock loop (PLL) reference clock source.

    Name Value Description
    None Configures the device to not phase lock the onboard clock with a Reference clock.
    ClkIn Configures the device to phase lock the onboard clock with the clock signal present at the CLK IN connector.
    PXI Clock Configures the device to phase lock the onboard clock with the clock signal present at the PXI reference clock pin on the PXI backplane. PXI_CLK10 is available for PXI devices, and PXIe_CLK100 is available for PXI Express devices. This clock signal is not supported on PCI devices.
    RTSI 7 Configures the device to phase lock the onboard clock with the clock signal present at the RTSI 7 pin on the PCI backplane. This clock signal is not supported on PXI devices.
    PXIe DStarA Configures the device to phase lock the onboard clock with the PXIe_DStarA signal present on the PXI Express backplane. This clock signal is supported only on PXIe-6555/6556 devices.
    datatype_icon

    clock rate (10000000)

    The reference clock rate, expressed in Hz.

    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

    session out

    Handle that identifies the session in all subsequent node calls.

    The session out parameter is obtained from the Initialize Acquisition Session node or the Initialize Generation Session node.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

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