NIDAQmx API's for MXI-2

Is it possible to use NIDAQmx API's instead of NI-VISA/NI-VXI API's to control a VXI system

Which standard PCI based cards are available for this purpose from NI with example programs

The only form factors available for the NI-DAQmx API are listed here:  http://www.ni.com/dataacquisition/.

The NI PCI-MXI-2 is a MXI link and not a data acquisition device. You can use the NI PCI-MXI-2 with a NI VXI-MXI-2 within a VXI chassis -- then place VXI instruments in the chassis, power on the chassis and boot up the computer, and run RESMAN to find your instruments. Here is a slew of resources for you to familiarize yourself with.

The NI PCI-MXI-2 is not an instrument. So if you want to do data acquistion in your PC, you'll need to purchase a PCI DAQ from here:  http://www.ni.com/dataacquisition/. For more help with data acquisiton questions, you should post in the data acquistion forum.
