Issue Details

I want to communicate between my PXI-7854 and my PXIe-7966. Can I send data between my two FPGA targets over the PXI backplane?

Solution

Only devices that are Peer-to-Peer enabled can stream data from one FPGA target to another over the PXI backplane. Since the PXI-7854 is not Peer-to-Peer enabled, these two devices cannot transfer data over the backplane, even though the PXIe-7966 is Peer-to-Peer enabled.

Additional Information

You can find which devices are Peer-to-Peer enabled using the Introduction to Peer-to-Peer Streaming white paper.
