ID Legacy ID Fixed Issue Issue Details
PXIe-6570 firmware potential for data corruption A race condition within the PXIe-6570 firmware (version 16.0.0f1) has the potential to cause data corruption issues. NI strongly recommends that you upgrade the firmware to a newer version immediately. Note: Any PXIe-6570 purchased from National Instruments includes a version of the firmware that has resolved this issue. This issue might be encountered by downgrading to the older 16.0.0f1 firmware version, which was shipped with the NI-Digital Pattern Driver and Digital Pattern Editor 16.0 software distribution.
Capture memory returns error -1074098097 Capture memory acquisition stops to prevent an overwrite when the capture memory is not full and PXIe backplane bandwidth is available. This issue might occur as a result of internal latency, which can cause a failure to transfer data.
Source memory fails to write data When using source memory, interacting with the device in NI Measurement & Automation Explorer or running the STS Maintenance Software might cause the PXIe-6570 to source incorrect data.
