The National Instruments PCI-1588 uses the IEEE 1588-2002 precision time protocol to synchronize clocks and events with other IEEE 1588-based instruments or computers. The NI PCI-1588 uses a standard RJ-45 Ethernet plug and CAT 5 cabling. It is capable of operating as either an IEEE 1588 master or slave clock module. An onboard FPGA automatically adjusts the frequency and phase of an onboard IEEE 1588 clock. The NI PCI-1588 interface synchronizes its clock with other IEEE 1588-capable devices through a built-in Ethernet port. With this synchronized time base, it can also synchronize events using (1) three general-purpose PFI lines for synchronizing non-1588 devices such as traditional instruments or PLCs via SMB connectors on the PCI bracket and (2) a RTSI interface for synchronizing other PCI instruments in the same PC.
You need software to interface with your hardware and to collect, analyze, present, and store your measurements. This board is compatible with a variety of programming languages, including LabVIEW, C/C++, Visual Basic, and .NET. LabVIEW provides the easiest integration with all of your NI hardware and is recommended to maximize your hardware investment.
