National Instruments offers a variety of interfaces to control your VXI system from a remote PXI system, PC, or workstation. MXI-Express and MXI-2-based controllers offer the highest overall performance. USB 2.0 interfaces provide lower-cost solutions for remotely controlling a VXI system.

The NI VXI-MXI-Express controller – built on cabled PCI Express technology for high-bandwidth, low-latency remote control – features up to 29 MB/s sustained throughput with thin, flexible cabling. An MXI-2 interface kit offers block-transfer performance comparable to embedded controllers with the additional flexibility and expandability of a desktop PC or workstation. The VXI-USB includes a word-serial accelerator and optimization for block moves, making a low-cost solution for message-based control of VXI.
