NI-5791 CLIP

    Last Modified: April 24, 2017

    The NI-5791 ships with socketed CLIP items that add module I/O to the LabVIEW project.

    • NI-5791 CLIP

      The NI-5791 CLIP provides access to I and Q data for one receive channel and one transmit channel. The CLIP also provides a User Command interface for common configurations of the baseband clocking, programmable attenuators, receive amplifier, receive and transmit filters, LO filters, and RF path. You can also import and export the LO.

      Configure the baseband clocking using one of the following settings:

      • Internal Sample Clock
      • Internal Sample Clock locked to an external Reference Clock though the CLK IN connector
      • External Sample Clock through the CLK IN connector
      • Internal Sample Clock locked to an external Reference Clock through the Sync Clock

      This CLIP also contains a FAM Registers Bus interface, which is a low-level bus interface that directly programs registers on all programmable devices, such as the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and the digital-to-analog converter (DAC). Programming registers on these devices allows for more advanced configuration.


      You cannot configure the LO using the User Command interface. Use the FAM Registers Bus interface to program the LO synthesizer, then use the User Command interface to configure the LO filters.
