Setting up Embedded Controllers and Mainframe Extenders as Non-Slot 0 Devices, Non-Resource Managers
VXIpc-800/700 Series (includes Vxipc-870 series)
Hardware
No changes are necessary. By default the VXIpc-800/700 Series uses automatic Slot 0
detection. Install the board in a slot other than Slot 0.
Optional Change:
It is possible to manually configure the VXIpc-800/700 Series for Slot 0 or Non-Slot 0
operation by changing jumper settings.
On the VXIpc-870 series, use jumper J12 to make this change as shown below.
On the VXIpc-800 Series, use jumper W13 to make this change.

not necessarily need to be Logical Address 0 (Resource Manager). Changing the
logical address can be considered optional.
T&M Explorer:
1. Open the Hardware Configuration editor for the VXIpc by right clicking on its entry
in Test and Measurement Explorer. Under the Device tab, change the Logical
Address parameter from 0 to a non-zero value.
2. Under the VXI tab, change the VXI Bus Timeout parameter to Disable.
3. Save your changes in T&M Explorer and rerun Resman.
Note: You must be logged on with administrative privileges if you are using Windows
NT.
Note: If your board is set up as a message-based device, it must wait for the Word Serial
command Begin Normal Operation from the actual Resource Manager device
(device at Logical Address 0).
Note: You do not need to run the Resman on the VXIpc if it is set up as a register based
device.
Note: You can specify your device type (message or register based) by specifying the
Device Class under the Device tab.
VXIedit/VXItedit:
1. Open the VXIpc-Configuration Editor, and in the Logical Address Configuration
Editor, change the Logical Address parameter from 0 to a non-zero value.
2. Switch to the Bus Configuration Editor and change the VXI Bus Timeout parameter
to DISABLE.
3. Save your changes in VXIedit/VXItedit and rerun VXIinit and Resman.
Note: If your board is set up as a message-based device, it must wait for the Word Serial
command Begin Normal Operation from the actual Resource Manager device (at
Logical Address 0).
Note: If your board is set up as a register-based device, you don’t have to run Resman on
it.
Note: To set whether your board is message based or register based, go into
VXIedit/VXItedit, open the VXIpc Configuration Editor, and in the Logical
Address Configuration Editor, edit the Device Type field.

VXI/VMEpc-600 Series
Hardware
No changes are necessary. By default the VXI/VMEpc-600 Series uses automatic Slot 0
detection. Install the board in a slot other than Slot 0.
Optional Change:
It is possible to manually configure the VXI/VMEpc-600 Series for Slot 0 or Non-Slot 0
operation with jumper W11 as shown below.
Software
Note that installing a device in Slot 0 does not necessarily imply that it is also the
Resource Manager device, and vice versa. A device that is not in Slot 0 can still
perform the Resource Manager configuration, and conversely, a Slot 0 device does
not necessarily need to be Logical Address 0 (Resource Manager). Changing the
logical address can be considered optional.
T&M Explorer:
4. Open the Hardware Configuration editor for the VXIpc by right clicking on its entry
in Test and Measurement Explorer. Under the Device tab, change the Logical
Address parameter from 0 to a non-zero value.
5. Under the VXI tab, change the VXI Bus Timeout parameter to Disable.
6. Save your changes in T&M Explorer and rerun Resman.
Note: You must be logged on with administrative privileges if you are using Windows

Note: If your board is set up as a message-based device, it must wait for the Word Serial

VXI-MXI-2 (Non-Slot 0)
Hardware
No changes are necessary. By default the VXI-MXI-2 uses automatic Slot 0 detection.
Install the board in a slot other than Slot 0.

VME-MXI-2 (Non-Slot 1)
Hardware
No changes are necessary. By default the VME-MXI-2 uses automatic VME Slot 1
detection. Install the board in a slot other than Slot 1.
Optional Change:
It is possible to manually configure the VME-MXI-2 for Slot 1 or Non-Slot 1 using
VXIedit or Test and Measurement Explorer. This might be necessary if your VME
chassis does not comply with the VME64 specification for automatic detection of the Slot
1 position. You must put the VME-MXI-2 in a VME 64 compliant chassis in order to set
this option.
VXI-1394 and VXI-1394/G
NI VXI 2.0 does not support using VXI-1394 interfaces in a multi mainframe
configuration and so there is no reason to put a VXI-1394 in any slot other than slot 0.
Future revisions of NI-VXI may support this functionality

Configuration Editor, change the Logical Address parameter from 0 to a non-zero
value. Notice that installing a device in Slot 0 does not necessarily imply that it is also

perform the Resource Manager configuration, and conversely, a Slot 0 device does
not necessarily need to be Logical Address 0 (Resource Manager). Changing the
logical address can be considered optional.

to DISABLE.
3. In the Bus Configuration Editor, change the VXI Bus Timeout parameter to

4. Save your changes in VXIedit/VXItedit and rerun VXIinit and Resman.
Note: If your board is set up as a message-based device, it must wait for the Word Serial

5. Install the board in a slot other than Slot 0.
Optional Changes:
1. If you need to change the logical address of the VXI-MXI from its default value of 1,
set the DIP switches to the new logical address. The DIP switches represent bits 7 to 0
in forming the VXI-MXI’s logical address. DIP switch 1 represents bit 7 (decimal
value of 128), DIP switch 2 represents bit 6 (decimal value of 64), and so on. Push
down on the OFF side to set the bit.
Example: If DIP switches 1 and 2 are pushed down on the OFF side, the
VXI-MXI is set to logical address hex C0, or decimal 192
(128 + 64 = 192).

Note: You should let the VXI-MXI perform the VMEbus Timeout function, if at all
possible, because this will generally allow MXIbus transfers more time to
complete. If the VXI-MXI is performing the VMEbus Timeout function, make
sure no other VXI devices are trying to perform this function. For example, if
you have a National Instruments embedded controller in the mainframe, use
its VXI Resource Editor, VXIedit/VXItedit, to set its Local Bus Timeout and
VXIbus Timeout parameters to DISABLE.

2. Install the board in a slot other than Slot 1.
Optional Changes:
1. If you need to change the logical address of the VME-MXI from its default value of 1,
set the DIP switches at U94 to a new logical address. The DIP switches represent bits
7 to 0 in forming the VME-MXI’s logical address. DIP switch 1 represents bit 7
(decimal value of 128), DIP switch 2 represents bit 6 (decimal value of 64), and so on.
Push down on the OFF side to set the bit.
Example: If DIP switches 2, 4, and 6 are pushed down on the OFF side, the
VME-MXI is set to logical address hex 54, or decimal 84
(64 + 16 + 4 = 84).

installing a device in Slot 0 does not necessarily imply that it is also the Resource

perform the Resource Manager configuration and, conversely, a Slot 0 device does
not necessarily need to be Logical Address 0 (Resource Manager). Changing the
logical address can be considered optional.
2. Switch to the Bus Configuration Editor and change the VXI Bus Timeout parameter
to 0 (disabled).
3. Save your changes in VXItedit and rerun VXIinit and Resman.
Note: If your board is set up as a message-based device, it must wait for the Word Serial
command Begin Normal Operation from the actual Resource Manager device (at
Logical Address 0).
Note: If your board is set up as a register-based device, you don’t have to run Resman on
it.
Note: To set whether your board is message based or register based, go to the Logical
