The NI ELVIS III workstation and the NI ELVIS III Prototyping Board ship in antistatic packages to prevent electrostatic damage. Electrostatic discharge can damage several components on the NI ELVIS III hardware.
Remove the hardware from the package and inspect it for loose components or any sign of damage. Contact NI if the hardware appears damaged in any way.
Store the workstation and the prototyping board in the antistatic envelopes when not in use.
