Issue Details

I am not able to add the 9860 module under the FPGA target in LabVIEW project. Is it supported in the FPGA interface?


Although you cannot deploy the 986X modules under the FPGA target, the C Series Module Compatibility Chart indicates FPGA support for the NI 986X module. This is because the 986X C series modules require an FPGA VI to be deployed to provide proper XNET support for modules.

The chassis has to be in hybrid mode for proper use. The correct setup for an NI-986x module can be found on pages 2-7 through 2-11 in the XNET Hardware and Software Manual.

Additional Information

The only XNET modules that support programming in LabVIEW FPGA are the 985x series. These modules do not support use with the XNET driver.
