Issue Details

I've just received the PCI-5406 for my project, but I am finding that the PCB board is too long to be installed into general desktops we have onsite. Could you recommend some desktops we can use? 


While NI does not make specific model recommendations, NI can provide guidance on finding an appropriate fit.

In the NI PXI/PCI-5402/5406 Specifications, there are dimensions listed for the PCI 5406. These are 34.1 x 2.0 x 10.7 cm (13.4 x 0.8 x 4.2 in). When reviewing desktop options, as long as the chassis or case can accommodate that size and you have sufficient PCI slots for it, that should ensure that the device can physically fit.
