The National Instruments PCI-6562 is a 400 Mb/s digital waveform generator/analyzer for interfacing to LVDS digital electronics. This module features a 200 MHz clock rate, single- and double-data-rate modes, 16 channels with per-channel direction control (in single-data-rate mode), and deep onboard memory with triggering and pattern sequencing. You can use this device with the NI Digital Waveform Editor, an interactive software tool for creating and editing digital waveforms. With the SMC, you can create mixed-signal test systems with digitizers and arbitrary waveform generators, or you can synchronize multiple digital devices to build low-skew, multichannel systems for interfacing to high-pin-count digital ICs and electronics.
