    • 1 Aggregate power limits apply. The NI ELVIS III can provide up to 40 W for simultaneous use on the USB host ports, fixed user power supplies, and the variable power supplies.
    • 2 The wireless radio may disable radio channels based on the country of operation.
    • 3 Including assumed typical application board user power consumption.
    • 4 In the default configuration, the analog output will power on at a calibrated 0 V. There may be short glitches on the output during the power-on sequence.
    • 5 The NI ELVIS III enables a 40.2 kΩ pull-up to 3.3 V on the DIO lines by default. If the NI ELVIS III detects an application board designed for the NI ELVIS II/II+, it enables a 40.2 kΩ pull-down to Ground on the DIO lines instead.
    • 6 I2C requires an additional pull-up resistor on I2C_SCL and I2C_SDA for correct operation. Some I2C devices already include suitable pull-up resistors, others require that the resistors be added explicitly on the application board. Typical resistor values range from 1 kΩ to 10 kΩ.
