With the National Instruments PXI-ExpressCard8360 kit, you can transparently control PXI and CompactPCI systems from a laptop computer with either an ExpressCard/34 or ExpressCard/54 slot. The PXI-ExpressCard8360 kit consists of an ExpressCard-8360 card in the laptop connected via an ExpressCard MXI cable to an NI PXI-8360 module in slot 1 of a PXI chassis. The ExpressCard-8360 card provides a x1 (by one) PCI Express link that is cabled to the PXI-8360 module. The PXI-8360 module includes a bridge that converts the cabled PCI Express link to the PCI bus that is used in PXI. Thus, all PXI modules appear to you as if they are PCI boards within the laptop computer itself.
