    spd-note-note
    Note  

    Some specifications are specific to earlier revisions of the PXIe-6674 module. A label with revision information can be found on the module board as shown in the PXIe-6674 Revision Label figure below.

    x denotes all letter revisions of the assembly. Ensure the specifications of interest match the revision that is printed on the label.

    Definitions

    Warranted specifications describe the performance of a model under stated operating conditions and are covered by the model warranty.

    The following characteristic specifications describe values that are relevant to the use of the model under stated operating conditions but are not covered by the model warranty.

    • Typical specifications describe the performance met by a majority of models.
    • Nominal specifications describe an attribute that is based on design, conformance testing, or supplemental testing.

    Clock Generation Phase Noise Performance

    spd-note-note
    Note  

    All Phase Noise Measurements were made on a Representative Module of various Clock Generation frequencies routed to ClkOut. All measurements made in a PXIe-1062 chassis with low fan speed and an OCXO connected to PXI_Clk10_IN using a PXIe-6674T.

    The phase noise performance of the clock generation circuitry varies depending on what elements are used to generate the requested frequency. To generate frequencies above 300 MHz, a PLL is used to multiply the DDS frequency up which results in increased phase noise versus when the DDS is used directly (all frequencies below 300 MHz).

    Figure 6. Phase Noise Performance
    Figure 7. Phase Noise of Frequencies from the Multiplying PLL

    At 50 MHz, NI-Sync software will automatically switch between the high speed and low speed ClkOut drivers[6]. The phase noise performance of these two drivers differs, as shown in the following figure:

    * PFI Input switching behavior is a function of both the threshold setting and hysteresis.

    Input Voltage Swing below 400 mV may be possible but performance is not guaranteed.

    Operation beyond 150 MHz frequency may be possible but performance is not guaranteed.

    ** Voltages beyond the maximum range may cause damage to the device.

    †† PFI line will float to 0.45 V when configured in high impedance mode with no external signal connected as input.

    ‡‡ Ensure that the specifications of interest match the revision label on your board.

    Recommended Maximum Differential Input Voltage* 1 V
    Maximum Input Voltage Range 0 V to 4 V
    Differential Input Resistance 100 Ω, ±10%
    Maximum Input Frequency 200 MHz

    * Operation with greater voltage swing will not damage the device but performance characteristics are not guaranteed.

    Maximum Input Voltage Range is any combination of input voltage swing and common mode voltage. For example, a 200 mV differential swing with common mode voltage of 100 mV is acceptable as the lowest applied voltage to the input would be 0 V. A 200 mV differential swing with common mode less than 100 mV would cause the applied voltage to fall below 0V and therefore would not be acceptable.

    Operation beyond 200 MHz is possible but performance is not guaranteed. THis limitation comes from the FPGA, not the LVDS receiver.

    Differential Output Voltage into 100 Ω differential load (at DC) 600 mVpp typical

    * Operation beyond 1 GHz is possible but performance is not guaranteed.

    Operation beyond 200 MHz is possible but performance is not guaranteed. This limitation comes from the FPGA, not the LVDS driver.

    The following figure shows the representative LVDS output operating at 100 MHz. 1 unit interval in this figure equals 5 ns.

    * Typical Delay is measured from the input to the NI PXIe-6674 at the connector to the output at the connector. For example, Single Ended PFI to PXI-Star is the delay from the Single Ended PFI SMA connector to the PXI-Star at the backplane connector.

    Typical Skew is defined as the difference in arrival time of a rising edge on a common source to two or more outputs with in a trigger destination, as seen as the connector. For example, if Single Ended PFI(0) is asynchronously routed to all PXI-Trigger lines, the typical skew would be less than 1.5 ns.

    * Setup Time is the amount of time before a rising edge of PXI-Clk10 (at the backplane connector) that a logic level must be valid on the trigger source (at the connector) in order for the trigger destination to update.

    Hold Time is the amount of time after a rising edge of PXI-Clk10 (at the backplane connector) that a logic level must be valid on the trigger source (at the connector) in order for the trigger destination to update.

    • 1 The minimum frequency is limited by AC coupling.
    • 2 Frequency Accuracy is inherited from PXIe_Clk100/PXI_Clk10. Use OCXO for PXIe_Clk100/PXI_Clk10 replacement for improved frequency accuracy and phase noise.
    • 3 This is the frequency resolution of the DDS used in the Clock Generation circuitry. For Clock Generation frequencies below 150 MHz, this resolution is divided down and for frequencies above 300 MHz, this resolution is multiplied up.
    • 4 When routed to ClkOut Low Speed or used as a trigger synchronization clock, Clock Generation can be further divided by the FPGA by factors of two up to 24. This extends the Clock Generation range down to 4.6875 MHz/224=0.2794 Hz. When routed to ClkOut High Speed the minimum frequency is 4.6875 MHz. Use ClkOutHS as the destination terminal to force NI-Sync to use the low speed driver below 50 MHz. Note that AC coupling on ClkOut limits the minimum frequency which can be used.
    • 5 Clock Generation can be operated beyond the upper limit; however, NI does not guarantee performance beyond 1 GHz. 2 GHz is the maximum output frequency by design.
    • 6 Use ClkOutHS as the destination terminal to force NI-Sync to use the high speed driver below 50 MHz.
    • 7 Operation beyond 200 MHz is possible but performance is not guaranteed.
    • 8 Accuracy of frequency measurement is relative to the frequency accuracy of the reference counter source. The Measure Frequency function in NI-Sync does not account for error from the reference source.
