  • USB-6289
  • PCI-6289
  • PXI-6289

Issue Details

I'm checking the device specifications manual of my USB device to find the pinout diagram of it, but in the manual, there are two diagrams with a different distribution of the pins between them and I don't know which is one is the correct one.

Solution

The NI USB-6289 has also a PCI/PXI version of it, in the manual you are going to find the pinout of both, the USB version and the PCI/PXI version.
 

In the manual you can check that above the diagrams, the title of the image specifies to which type of device corresponds the image.
