Generate Signals Using Decimal Data Across Multiple Lines

This example shows how to convert decimal data and output to two lines on an NI 6255.

Find devices connected to your system and find the ID for NI 6255.

d = daq.getDevices;
d = 

Data acquisition devices:

index Vendor Device ID          Description         
----- ------ --------- -----------------------------
1     ni     Dev1      National Instruments USB-6255
2     ni     Dev2      National Instruments USB-6363

Create a session and add two lines from port 0 on Dev1.

s = daq.createSession('ni');
addDigitalChannel(s,'Dev1','Port0/Line0:1','OutputOnly')
Data acquisition session using National Instruments hardware:
   Clocked operations using startForeground and startBackground are disabled.
   Only on-demand operations using inputSingleScan and outputSingleScan can be done.
   Number of channels: 2
      index Type Device   Channel   MeasurementType Range Name
      ----- ---- ------ ----------- --------------- ----- ----
      1     dio  Dev1   port0/line0 OutputOnly      n/a
      2     dio  Dev1   port0/line1 OutputOnly      n/a

Convert the decimal number 2 to a binary vector and output the result

outputSingleScan(s,decimalToBinaryVector(2))
