Issue Details

How many RAM upgrade slots are available for the PXIe-8135 controller? I'm buying larger RAM cards from National Instruments and I need to know how many I should purchase.


There are typically two, sometimes three, memory sockets available on our PXIe-controllers. For example, PXIe-8135 has 2 memory sockets available to upgrade the RAM cards. The PXIe-8880 has 3 memory sockets available. 

More specifics about available memory sockets in each PXIe-controller can be found in the "Upgrading RAM" section of the controller's User Manual.

Additional Information

National Instruments has tested and verified specific SO-DIMMs we sell work with our PXIe controllers. We recommend you purchase your SO-DIMM modules from National Instruments. Other off-the-shelf SO-DIMM modules are not guaranteed to work properly.
