Specific information about these chips can be found on the Xilinx web site. However, all relevant information for the use of these NI devices can be found on, and the specifications are linked below.

For most R-Series, FlexRIO, and Reconfigurable Oscilloscope devices, one can find detailed FPGA information such as Speed Grade and FPGA package by adding the device to a LabVIEW project, right clicking the device, and choosing Properties.

To determine which version of the Xilinx FPGA Compilation tools you should install for your target, refer to the LabVIEW FPGA Module Release and Upgrade Notes for your installed LabVIEW version. You can also use KnowledgeBase 73AI806R: Which Xilinx Compile Tools Do I Need to Compile My FPGA Code? to determine which version of the Compilation tools you need.

Some Legacy versions of cRIO controllers (such as the 900x, 901x, and 902x) do not have an FPGA on board. Rather, the backplane to which it mates (such as the 910x and 911x) contains the FPGA.
