Is there a list of specifically what is and is not tested on the PXI-6259 when self-test is run under MAX?
Self test doesn't do all that much... It is a check to make sure the driver can communicate with the hardware.
I'm not sure what you're hoping to test for, but you might want to take a look at the DAQ Diagnostic Utility if you're trying to diagnose damaged or defective hardware.
I was hoping for an automated go-no-go test that verifies all functionality of the Card or at least a list of what actually is functional after passing the test.
