Confirmation PXIe-1073 needs host PC?

Solved!
Go to solution

Sorry for the ignorance.  We've gone through the PXIe-1073 User's Guide and are not positive:

 

Does the  PXIe-1073 require a PC/laptop to house an NI card to control the PXIe-1073?  

 

The one other PXI chassis we know about has an embedded PC.  Perhaps PXI(e) devices need either an embedded PC or an external PC host?

 

Thanks

Steve

The PXIe-1073 has an integrated MXIe controller.  But you do need something to control that interface (ie a PC or laptop).  There are bundles for the PCIe (desktop) or Express card (laptop) connections.

Yes! crossrulz is right

 

Check on http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/372768b.pdf#page=15

The NI PXIe-1073 chassis has a built-in x1 MXI-Express interface that can be accessed through the MXI-Express chassis controller connector on the back of the chassis.

The MXIe interface can be cabled to a remote system with a host card using a x1 MXI-Express cable to provide control of the NI PXIe-1073 chassis.
