There are three different kinds of 32bit PCI cards: Full-Length, Half-Length, and another type called Low-Profile or Slim. NI has all three of these kinds of PCI devices. Consult the device manual to determine the size of the PCI device.
The bus connection is identical for all three types of cards, but most computers will only accommodate half-length PCI cards. You will need to check with the computer manufacturer or take a look at the machine specifications to verify what PCI size your computer can accommodate. The measurements of each PCI format are listed in the table below.
2.54 in (height) X 4.72 in (length) to 2.54 in (height) X 6.59 in (length)
