Using a Thunderbolt expansion chassis with a NI frame grabber

Highlighted

Has anyone used a Thunderbolt expansion chassis with an NI frame grabber?

I'm looking to add the ability to use a NI PCIe-1433 Camera Link frame grabber to my laptop.  Any advice?

 

Thanks!

Hi Bruce,

 

I think we've used the PCIe-1433 and 1437 in a Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 chassis before. Those devices aren't fully Thunderbolt-certified, so things like hot-plugging them are unlikely to work properly, but otherwise normal usage should be fine.

Thanks, I'm going to try to convince management here to give it a shot and see how it goes.  If you think of anything else, or even give it a try, let me know.

 

Also, do you happen to know the differences between the 1433 and 1437?  We have 1433s probably because 1437s did not exist when we selected the 1433.

 

Thanks,

Bruce
