The NI ELVIS III has a high degree of hardware compatibility with application boards designed for NI ELVIS II. However, most NI ELVIS II application boards will require updated software support in order to work with NI ELVIS III. Contact the manufacturer of your existing NI ELVIS II application board for more information on hardware compatibility and if a software update is necessary and available.
The application board power button enables/disables the fixed user power supply rails and the RIO digital output pull-ups. When disabled, the application board power button prevents the board ID EEPROM from being read. The application board power button is also used to reenable the application board's functions after a multi-supply short circuit condition.
