Issue Details

I need to use a National Instruments PCI/PCIe module in a system where there is no PCI/PCIe slot. Is there any way that I can transfer the data through USB?


There is currently no officially supported PCI/PCIe to USB or vice versa adapters by National Instruments that is available that can help in transferring data from a PCI/PCIe card to a USB slot.

Additional Information

There might be constraints in the USB bandwidth that will constrict the data flowing from the PCI/PCIe module to the system. This actually defeats the purpose of using PCI/PCIe modules.
