I am new to the NI environment (and data acquisition, really) and I'm trying to pick the components for my first PXI system. With the positive and negative 20V outputs the PXI-4110 (with optional external supply) is perfect for my needs, and for the chassis the PXIe-1078 seems like a good fit, but I'm finding conflicting information about whether they'll work together. The -4110 apparently just has a "plain" PXI interface, while the -1078 has only PXIe & PXIe Hybrid slots.
At least one of these pieces of information has to be wrong, right? The simplest explanation (and the one I'm hoping for) is that the PXI-4110 actually DOES have a hybrid interface [or "hybrid compatible"... this PXIe-1078 manual alludes to plugging in PXI modules by modifying the connectors?] If that's the case, then maybe the PXI-4110's info in the shop needs to be corrected? Please let me know if I'm misinterpreting something.

Thank you for posting this, hopefully I can clear up some confusion. In short, the 1078 and the 4110 are indeed compatible. The connector type of the 4110 is a PXI/cPCI connector which is hybrid compatible. The connector for this card only has pins on the lower half of the card while full PXI cards have a connector block along the entire rear of the card. All of the current cards we sell under the PXI name will fit in a PXIe hybrid slot type.
