Dear Friends,

Does anybody have experience programming in Labview the AD5541 or
AD5542 boards (Digital-to-Analog converters) from Analog Devices ( http://www.yqcomputer.com/ %2C2877%2CAD5541%2C00.html)?
LabView code examples or description of the general approach to this task would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Update: My PXI system has NI-6534 board which I can use
for digital output. But I need to perform Digital-to-Analog conversion
by the remote AD5541 board.Is there a way to do this?

That's a chip, not a board. Get the data sheet, look at the logic
diagrams, and you should be able to bit-bang the three logic inputs (well,
two plus a chip select) with your 6534.

Alternatively, the chip uses SPI communication. You can probably find some
help by searching for SPI on the NI site. It also looks like a third party
has a $200 solution the will let you do this via a parallel port, complete
with labview drivers, at http://www.yqcomputer.com/
