Product Support for the cRIO-9951 Module Development Kit
Updated Jan 22, 2021
By purchasing the cRIO-9951 Module Development Kit (MDK), you can develop custom C Series modules. The kit includes CompactRIO module development software and the CompactRIO Module Development Kit user manual. Additionally, it features housing module shells and connectors. Review your support options for the cRIO-9951 MDK below.
Designing a custom module requires knowledge of electrical circuit and firmware design as well as board layout and application driver-level software design skills. NI answers only general questions about the cRIO-9951 MDK and cannot support in-depth circuit design or firmware-specific questions.
As part of the cRIO-9951 MDK Suite, you have access to a specific number of technical support hours per the cRIO Module Development Kit Distribution Agreement. To obtain support, please contact your NI Account Manager or local NI Support office. In addition, you may use the private NI discussion forum.
You can find the private support forum for the MDK at http://forums.ni.com/t5/cRIO-Module-Developers-Kit/bd-p/private5. To register for the private forum, you need to have a forum alias. If you do not have one, please visit http://forums.ni.com and click the Register link to create one. If you already have an alias, email email@example.com with your direct email address and the NI forum alias name. Our goal is to update the NI web systems within 48 hours. Please check back after that time to view the forum. If you do not see the new forum once you log in to ni.com after this time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
With your purchase of the cRIO-9951 MDK, you receive a complete design specification manual that describes the electrical specifications and hardware design requirements for creating a custom module. Also described in the manual is a basic software application programming interface model that you can use to create higher level drivers in LabVIEW FPGA and LabVIEW Real-Time for your custom module.
