Last Modified: June 15, 2020

Use a chassis master hardware synchronization device to control the synchronization of all hardware in a chassis.

  1. Launch the VeriStand Editor.
  2. In the Project Files pane, double-click a system definition file (.nivssdf). System Explorer opens.
  3. Choose to add and configure one of the following hardware devices to the system definition.
    Device Type Device Configuration
    NI-DAQ The NI-DAQ device must have at least one analog input or output channel.
    NI FPGA Any NI FPGA device.
    Timing and Sync The timing and sync device must have the capability to drive the 0 line.

    The RTSI 0 line is a digital line that sends a clock signal that synchronizes all hardware I/O devices in the system.

  4. Click Targets» Controller» Hardware» Chassis in the configuration tree to open the Chassis Configuration page.
  5. Click Chassis master hardware synchronization device to select the hardware device.
  6. Save the system definition file.
