NI-VXI Resource Manager 5.0 Configuration Software Supports VXI 3.0

4/7/2004 - National Instruments is the first company to offer software support for the recently passed VXI-1 Revision 3.0 specification with its new NI-VXI Resource Manager 5.0 configuration software. The NI-VXI Resource Manager, a component of NI-VXI driver software that was introduced in 1989, is a critical software tool for configuration of thousands of VXI systems.

With NI-VXI Resource Manager 5.0 configuration software, engineers can configure VXI modules that require A64 memory allocation specified by VXI-1 Revision 3.0. NI-VXI Resource Manager 5.0 gives engineers the flexibility to allocate memory for new hardware that uses the A64 address space alongside existing VXI-1 Revision 2.0 compliant modules that are limited to A32 addressing.

NI-VXI Resource Manager 5.0 configuration software is a free update to NI-VXI 3.3.1. NI will include Resource Manager 5.0 in NI-VXI 3.4, which will release later this year.

NI-VXI driver software and VXI Resource Manager configuration software continue to support the latest technology that the VXI market and VXIbus Consortium have to offer while maintaining compatibility with existing systems. NI-VXI and Resource Manager work with all VXI embedded and remote controllers as well as NI LabVIEW 7 Express, LabWindows/CVI and TestStand.
