  • PXIe-1071

Issue Details

I'm using the PXI Advisor to build a PXI system. When I select a chassis with a fan underneath the card slots such as the PXIe 1078 or 1071 chassis, all the 449x DSA modules appear grayed out. Why I can't select a 449x module  using these chassis? 

Solution

Use a high-performance chassis (like the PXIe 1062Q) or any chassis where the fans aren't located on the bottom of the chassis. 

Additional Information

The 449x DSA modules high-sensitivity cards that are meant to operate in specific conditions. However. some chassis such as the 107x series have fans on the bottom, which introduces electrical and mechanical noise that the modules pick up. This raises the noise floor of the DSA card causing it to be out of spec inside these chassis.
