    Pin Signal Description
    1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61, 63, 65 Data DIO <0..31>, bidirectional PPMU-capable digital I/O data channels 0 through 31
    2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 28, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 62, 66, 68 Ground Instrument ground. Also default ground reference if DUT Ground Sense (DGS) is not connected
    26 Analog CAL MEASURE , Resource for external calibration
    33 Analog CAL SENSE , Resource for external calibration
    64 Ground Optional DGS for improved accuracy at higher currents in some configurations
    Analog CAL GND, Resource for external calibration
    67 Analog CAL FORCE, Resource for external calibration

    Note  

    The 32 digital I/O data channels on the digital pattern instrument are split into banks for PPMU operation efficiency: DIO<0..7>, DIO<8..15>, DIO<16..23>, DIO<24..31>. PPMU and frequency measurements run in parallel when you take measurements on channels in different banks.

    LED Status Indicators

    Status indicators on the front panel of the PXIe-6571 provide feedback about instrument operation.

    Use the following table to determine the PXIe-6571 state using the Access LED status indicator.

    Table 2. Access LED Status Indicator
    Color Indications
    Off Instrument not yet functional.
    Amber Instrument being accessed by software.
    Green Instrument ready to be programmed.

    Use the following table to determine the PXIe-6571 state using the Active LED status indicator.

    Table 3. Active LED Status Indicator
    Color Indications
    Off Instrument is not waiting for a trigger, not bursting a pattern, and not experiencing an error. During PPMU operations, the Active LED remains off.
    Amber Instrument awaiting Start trigger.
    Green Instrument received Start trigger and is bursting a pattern.
    Red Instrument error condition.

    Possible error conditions:

    • The instrument has detected an unlocked condition on a PLL that might result in incorrect data. To clear this error condition, reset the instrument programmatically or through Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).
    • The instrument has been disabled because it exceeded its overall power limit. To re-enable the instrument, reset it programmatically or through MAX.
    • The instrument has been disabled because it exceeded its overall temperature limit. To re-enable the instrument, cool the instrument to an acceptable range and resolve the environmental condition that caused the shutdown. Reset the instrument programmatically or through MAX, or power cycle the instrument.
