    Signal Reference Description

    AI GND

    Analog Input Ground—These terminals are the reference point for single-ended AI measurements in RSE mode and the bias current return point for DIFF measurements. All ground references—AI GND, AO GND, and D GND—are connected on the device.

    AI <0..15>

    Varies

    Analog Input Channels For single-ended measurements, each signal is an analog input voltage channel. In RSE mode, AI GND is the reference for these signals. In NRSE mode, the reference for each AI signal is an AI SENSE.

    For differential measurements, AI 0 and AI 8 are the positive and negative inputs of differential analog input channel 0. Similarly, the following signal pairs also form differential input channels: AI <1,9>, AI <2,10>, and so on.

    AI SENSE

    Analog Input SenseIn NRSE mode, the reference for each AI <0..15> signal is AI SENSE.

    AO <0,1>

    AO GND

    Analog Output Channels—These terminals supply voltage output.

    AO GND

    Analog Output Ground—AO GND is the reference for AO. All ground references—AI GND, AO GND, and D GND—are connected on the device.

    D GND

    Digital GroundD GND supplies the reference for digital channels, PFI, and +5 V. All ground references—AI GND, AO GND, and D GND—are connected on the device.

    P0.<0..7>

    D GND

    Port 0 Digital I/O ChannelsYou can configure each signal individually as an input or output. P0.6 and P0.7 can also control the up/down signal of Counters 0 and 1, respectively.

    AO EXT REF

    D GND

    External Reference—This pin is the external reference input for the AO circuitry.

    +5 V

    D GND

    +5 V Power Source—These terminals supply a +5 V power source.

    AI HOLD COMP

    D GND

    AI Hold Complete Event Signal——When enabled, this signal pulses once for each A/D conversion in sample mode. The low-to-high edge indicates when the input signal can be removed from the input or switched to another signal.

    EXT STROBE
