to plot analog/temperature, digital, and counter input data:
? Strip - Shows data points for each channel, and continu-

? Block - Shows a specified number, or block, of data points
for each channel.
? Scalar - Shows the numeric value of a data point, or the
value of a digital bit on an LED (on = high, off = low)
When a counter channel is activated, users can easily configure counter
settings in the Counter Input channels grid.

Generating and Updating Analog
DAQami can generate and update signals from activated analog
Analog outputs for all supported AO devices can be updated dur-
ing an acquisition using a slider control on an Output display.
If the device supports hardware pacing, a waveform control is
also available. Users can select a sine, square, triangle, or saw-
tooth wave to output.
