    TClk Specifications

    You can use the NI TClk synchronization method and the NI-TClk driver to align the Sample clocks on any number of supported devices, in one or more chassis. For more information about TClk synchronization, refer to the NI-TClk Synchronization Help, which is located within the NI High-Speed Digitizers Help. For other configurations, including multichassis systems, contact NI Technical Support at ni.com/support.

    Intermodule SMC Synchronization Using NI-TClk for Identical Modules (Typical)

    Synchronization specifications are valid under the following conditions:

    • All modules are installed in one PXI Express chassis
    • The NI-TClk driver is used to align the Sample clocks of each module.
    • All parameters are set to identical values for each module.
    • Modules are synchronized without using an external Sample Clock.
    • Sample Clock set to 1 GS/s and all filters are disabled.

    Note  

    Although you can use NI-TClk to synchronize non-identical SMC-based modules, these specifications apply only to synchronizing identical modules.
