PXI to PXIe migration

Do hybrid slots of PXIe chassis require additional hardware (adapters etc.) to seat PXI modules?

No.  The PXI Hybrid slots can accept both PXI and PXIe cards.

I do want to point out that while hybrid slots will take PXI modules, the modules themselves need to be configure correctly. Normal PXI modules had a full backside connector. These need to be modified to be able to be inserted into a hybrid slot. The modification involves removing a portion of the connector to fit around the PXIe portion of the backplane connection. 

 

Take a look at Figure 4 from the following link:

If you have existing PXI modules with full backplane connectors, you should be able to call NI and have the modules sent in to be modified to fit in hybrid slots.
