You output a constant value and get ripple?

That one's easy:
The Basic-daughterboards are transformer-coupled [0]. This means you
won't get DC and low frequency (f < 1MHz) over these boards. If you need
that frequency range, the LF{RT}X-boards are the right ones for you.
Note: The Basic-Boards do not have aliasing filters, so you should be
able to receive signals from 1MHz to about 250MHz with aliasing. The
LF-Boards have a 30Mhz-aliasing filter, you get the range 0Hz < f <30MHz.
