PXI CAN cards

Where can I find info on the PXI CAN cards (PXI-8461, PXI-8464)?  Since there appears to be no support in nidaqmx (or base) I figure I'm going to need to write my own driver for it.  The kernel does provide CAN drivers, just not for NI cards.  Do these cards use the MITE chip?

Re: PXI CAN cards

Hello dcxemc,

The PXI-8461 and PXI-8464 are supported by the NI-CAN driver (latest online Windows version found here).  Unfortunetely, we do not have a version for Linux yet.

If you have a large or OEM type application, please contact your local sales representative.

Re: PXI CAN cards

Why don't you just publish the specs, so we can write our own drivers ?
