PXI Platform Services

PXI Platform Services supports NI PXI chassis and controllers, implements PXI software specifications, and supplies system services to other NI products.
PXI Platform Services is required to identify NI PXI and PXI Express chassis and modules, as well as to allow for trigger routing. The applicable hardware driver for specific NI modules is still required for full module functionality. NI PXI Platform Services is already included as part of NI instrument drivers, but there may be cases where only the PXI Platform Services software is needed for certain applications, such as using NI MXI products or using NI PXI or PXI Express chassis without installing other NI PXI hardware drivers.
