If the PXI M Series DAQ card has a standard full backplane connector on the back of the card, it can control the SCXI side of a PXI/SCXI Combination Chassis. Most current M series cards are only shipped with hybrid Connector and cannot be used to control the SCXI portion of a PXI/SCXI Combination Chassis. There are still some cards that are sold with the standard PXI connector option so that they can control the SCXI portion of a PXI/SCXI combination Chassis
