4.37 - WriteMem [U12 Datasheet]

Writes 4 bytes to the LabJack’s 8,192 byte nonvolatile memory at a specified address. The data is read back and verified after the write. Memory 0-511 is reserved for configuration and calibration data. Memory from 512-1023 is unused by the LabJack and available for the user (this corresponds to starting addresses from 512-1020). Memory 1024-8191 is used as a data buffer in hardware timed AI modes (burst and stream).

Execution time for this function is 20 milliseconds or less (typically 16 milliseconds in Windows).
