Issue Details

I need a controller that supports Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 or 2.0. What options does National Instruments provide?

Solution

NI provides the following options for TPM support:
  • PXI
    • TPM is not supported on any PXI controllers.
  • PXIe
    • The PXIe-8880 supports TPM 1.2.
    • The PXIe-8861 supports TPM 2.0. 
    • The PXIe-8881 supports TPM 2.0. 
  • Rack Mounted Systems
    • The RMC-8357 has the ability to support TPM 1.2.
    • The RMC-8356 is the only rack mounted controller that has the ability to support both TPM 1.2 and TPM 2.0.
In order to enable TPM support, you will need to use a TPM chip. NI does not currently provide or sell TPM 1.2 or 2.0 chips or modules.
