CompactRIO modules from Drivven are compatible within two different platforms from National Instruments. One platform is CompactRIO, consisting of a CompactRIO controller and CompactRIO chassis as shown in Figure 1a below.

The other platform is National Instruments PXI which consists of any National Instruments PXI chassis along with a PXI RT controller and PXI-78xxR R-Series FPGA card. An R-Series expansion chassis must be connected to the PXI FPGA card via a SHC68-68-RDIO cable. The CompactRIO modules insert into the R-Series expansion chassis. This platform is shown in Figure 1b below.

Drivven CompactRIO modules are not compatible with the National Instruments CompactDAQ chassis.
Drivven CompactRIO modules REQUIRE one of the hardware support systems described above in order to function. The modules may not be used by themselves and/or interfaced to third party devices at the backplane HD15 connector. These efforts cannot be supported by Drivven or National Instruments.
