Description

The GX1632e is a 3U PXI Express digital to analog output board designed specifically for applications where multiple DC or AC analog outputs are required. The GX1632e offers 32 output channels with 16-bits of precision signal sourcing performance.  Three modes of operation are available including Analog Output, Arbitrary Waveform Generation (ARB) and Data Streaming.  

Features

The GX1632e is organized into four groups of eight channels, providing up to 32 channels of AWG or DC source capability. For DC operation, each group can be programmed and triggered independently. All groups can be updated simultaneously and each channel within a group can be programmed to a unique voltage. When used as a waveform generator, 64M of sample memory is allocated to each group of eight channels with the user being able to allocate the memory for one or all channels.

With all 32 channels configured for AWG mode, the maximum sample rate is 625 KS/s. Each group can be clocked independently via a programmable clock source or all groups can be clocked by a common source. Within any group, channels can be configured for a combination of DC operation and AWG or data streaming. Data streaming is supported by the GX1632e which allows continuous transmission of data from the controller.

Programming and Software

The board is supplied with the GXAO software package which includes a virtual instrument panel, a Windows 32/64-bit DLL driver library and documentation. The virtual panel can be used to interactively program and control the instrument from a window that displays the instrument’s settings and status. An IVI-C driver is also provided with class compatibility to IviFGen.

Additionally, interface files are provided to support  programming tools and languages such as ATEasy, LabView, LabView/Real-Time, C/C++, Microsoft Visual Basic®, Delphi, and Pascal. Help file and PDF User's Guide provides documentation that includes instructions for installing, using and programming the board.
