ADC11 causes Labview to Crash

Post by Bonne » Mon Aug 25, 2003 2:53 pm

Hi,
I'm using an ADC11 v1, and writing an interface for it in Labview. As the function adc_get_value isn't fast enough to sample at the rate I need, I used the adc_get_values function (after calling adc_set_interval).

The problem is that it won't always allow me to sample from more than one channel without crashing. I can take 1000 samples from one channel but sometimes when I try to sample more than one it crashes.

I checked that the array size was large enough for the data, and it is (at least samples*channels large).

The crashes occur during the adc_get_values function call.

Can you suggest anything to stop these crashes.

Hi,

I have tried to replicate this, but the Labview program I have works fine. Make sure that you follow the pseudo code in the help file. A common error that can cause this problem is forgetting to call the stop function.

Also down load the latest drivers for the ADC11 these are available from here.

Best regards,
