    Table 1. Connectors
    Signal Connector Type Description
    CH 0 and CH 1 BNC female Analog input connection; digitizes data and triggers acquisitions.
    CLK IN SMB Imports an external Reference Clock or Sample Clock to the oscilloscope.
    PFI 0 SMB PFI line for digital trigger input/output, probe compensation.
    AUX 0 MHDMR Reference Clock input, Reference Clock output, bidirectional digital PFI, and 3.3 V power output.
    Table 2. Access LED
    Color Indications
    Off The module is not yet functional or the module has detected a problem with a power rail.
    Amber The module is being accessed.
    Green The module is ready to be programmed.
    Table 3. Active LED
    Color Indications
    Off Module is not armed, triggered, or acquiring a waveform.
    Amber The module is armed and waiting for a Reference (Stop) Trigger.
    Green The module has received a Reference (Stop) Trigger. Also indicates that the module is acquiring a waveform.

    The module has detected an error. The LED remains red until the error condition is removed. The following scenarios are examples of potential errors:

    • Detected an unlocked condition on a previously locked PLL. A PLL that is unlocked while in reset does not show an error.
    • Unable to detect the external sample clock.
    • Detected an overheating or overpowering error.

    Certain driver interactions may cause the Active LED to flash red. An error condition does not exist unless the Active LED remains red.
