Real Time

I think I am kind of geared in the right direction by doing a real-time measurement. When I go into the real time wizard though, and it completes the wizard, it throws some error about missing some Variable timing engine. I looked it up online, and it says you need to install it through MAX. I went into MAX, and it is already installed. Not quite sure.. I love errors that compound my confusion.

I'm banging my head against the wall a bit, but that's nothing new... Trying to wrap my mind around the whole idea of getting some data up to the host vi, let alone putting it into a more useable format that just an indictaor... The getting started guide wasn't much help when it talks about waveforms, as it sees a continuous stream of data, where I will be waiting for the FIFO buffer to fill up, assert interrupt request, pass data up to host vi, then concatecate the data into an array, and then spit it into some useful waveform, or distribution, or plot, or some psuedo-oscilliscope.

Anyways, that's enough of my ranting.. Until next friday.
