Write Named Waveform (Write Named Waveform (Direct DMA)) (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: September 27, 2017

    Writes a specified amount of data from a Direct DMA-compatible device to the waveform in onboard memory.

    The sample size of the data you write is shown by the following table.

    Device Sample Size in Bytes
    PXI-6541/6542 4
    PXI-6544/6545 4
    PXIe-6547/6548 4 in SDR mode; 2 in DDR mode
    PXI/PXIe-655x 4
    PXIe-656x 2 in SDR mode; 1 in DDR mode

    waveform name

    The name you want to associate with the allocated waveform memory.

    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

    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

    samples to write

    The number of samples to write from the Direct DMA-compatible data source.

    datatype_icon

    window address

    The window address from the Direct DMA-compatible data source.

    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.

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

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