NI-Sync provides synchronization support for customers using PXI Synchronization Modules or any NI controller that supports real-time operating systems.
NI-Sync is an NI instrument driver with which you can configure system timing and synchronization, including signal-based synchronization and direct clock usage. You also can perform time-based synchronization using time protocols such as IEEE 1588 Standard, IEEE 802.1AS Standard, IRIG, or GPS as a time reference to time stamp or perform synchronized clock and trigger generation. NI-Sync supports PXI Synchronization Modules and real-time PXI, CompactDAQ, and CompactRIO controllers as well as Compact Vision Systems and Industrial Controllers. NI-Sync also includes advanced utilities and examples to make it easy to create your application.
