Hey Silvasy. You'll want the NI-DAQmx driver to configure and operate your PCI-6533. Here's a link to the latest verison:
Your clock rates should be well within the device capabilities.
The PCIe-6535 is highly compatible with the PCI-6533, and uses the same API and function calls as the PCI-6533, so I would expect your application to port to the 6535 with minimal changes required.
An area where the 6533 and 6535 differ is in cabling and connectivity. If you're going to be spending time creating a fixture to connect to the DIO card (and you want to eventually be on the 6535), I'd check out the "653x cable adapter" (NI p/n 195846-01) - it translates between 6533 and 6535 connectivity. My recommendation would be to get the adapter, plug it into the 6533, and use a VHDCI cable (e.g. NI p/n's 195949-01, 196275-01, or 192681-1R5) to connect up to your DUT or system. Once you're ready to move to the 6535, you can get rid of the cable adapter and just use the VHDCI cable directly.
The cable and cable adapter don't have "model" pages on our web site, but you can see their info on this page:
Hope this helps!
You can find the pinout in the help file for the 6535: http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/371893d.zip
Once you've opened the .chm file contained in the download, navigate to NI 6535/6536/6537 in the Contents tab, and then select Front Panel and Connector Pinout.
Hope that helps,

When I downloaded the file you suggested, I was unable to link to the document pages (error screen attached). Do I need other software to be able to view it?
For the .chm file that is in the .zip file that Keith pointed you to, you actually have to download and save the file to your PC. If you try to just open it up directly from the link, it will not work. Try saving the file to your machine and then unzipping it and opening it that way. Let us know if this works or not. Thanks, and have a great day.

Do you have a co-worker that has admin privilages that can try that out for you? Or maybe try on another computer?
Here are some screenshots from the help file for the time being, but you should probably try to get the whole help file working on some machine.
