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
Thanks tyler for the reply
I want to use PCI MXI-2 card on my PC. I want some sample program based on VC++ 6.0 to test NI PCI MXI-2 card. please let me know if you have come across this.
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.
