NI rolls out new PXI Express chassis

Suitable for test, measurement and control applications

By CBR Staff Writer

National Instruments has introduced PXI Express chassis and controller options for automated test and measurement applications, including its PXIe-8102/01 embedded controllers and the PXIe-1073 chassis. The new chassis and controllers are expected to maintain transfer rates of up to 250MB/s across the PXI Express data bus.

The company claimed that the PXIe-1073 chassis, which features an integrated remote controller, lowers the system entry point to PXI Express by 42% compared to previous PXI Express systems with similar capabilities. The chassis features five PXI Express hybrid slots that accept both PXI and PXI Express modules, such as the new X Series PXI Express data acquisition modules.

The chassis provides 250MB/s of total system bandwidth and an integrated MXI Express controller with PCI Express host controller card and cable. It is also compatible with LabVIEW graphical system design software, TestStand test management software and other software systems that optimise automated test, measurement and control applications, the company noted.

Reportedly, The PXIe-8102/01 embedded controllers are designed to address the needs of test engineers who require a PXI Express product that couples the PC and chassis in a self-contained system. The company’s PXIe-8102 features a dual-core 1.9 GHz Intel Celeron T3100 processor, and the PXIe-8101 includes a single-core 2.0 GHz Intel Celeron 575 processor.

The company said that integrating these controllers into a PXI Express chassis, such as the company’s PXIe-1062Q or PXIe-1082, provides engineers with a platform that delivers up to 1GB/s of total system bandwidth and up to 250GB/s of single-slot bandwidth.

Eric Starkloff, vice president of test marketing at NI, said: “Since the initial release of the PXI Express standard in 2005, National Instruments has delivered a wide range of PXI Express solutions to test engineers seeking increased performance and a lower cost for test systems.

“We are committed to the PXI Express standard and to growing our selection of products. Our latest PXI Express chassis and embedded controllers offer the added performance of PXI Express data transfer rates to a variety of cost-sensitive application areas such as multi-channel data acquisition systems, high-speed real-time control systems and high-resolution mixed-signal test and measurement systems.”
