Can I use the FPGA on EtherCAT 9145 chassis

Solved!
Go to solution

I have a Veristand project that uses the Scan Engine and EtherCAT custom device with a cRIO-9145 connected to a cRIO-9045. Someone bought NI-9262 cards which need the FPGA, so I want to know if I can use these cards in the cRIO-9145?  I know I would have to create the FPGA code, but I don't know if I can add the FPGA target for the 9145 to my system definition.

If you look under your NI 914x chasses you will see User Variables.  You can add the FPGA personality for for the 9262 cards there.

Thank you very much.  Would I be able to run in Hybrid mode with some slots using the scan engine?

Yes, you will only write FPGA code for the cRIO cards you want, all the others should run in the scan engine hybrid mode.
