Test & Measurement


PXI embedded controller and chassis

8 April 2015 Test & Measurement

Recently débuted by National Instruments are the PXIe-8880 controller, which is based on the Intel Xeon processor, and the PXIe-1085 chassis, which is the industry’s first chassis that uses PCI Express Gen 3 technology.

The combination of an eight-core, server-class processor (E5-2618L v3) and full system bandwidth of 24 GBps delivers extreme performance for computationally intensive and highly parallel applications such as wireless test, semiconductor test and 5G prototyping. Customers can take advantage of the flexibility of the PXI platform to replace previous-generation controllers with the PXIe-8880 and see up to double the performance in their test and measurement applications.

The embedded controller features eight cores, up to 24 GB of DDR4 memory and 24 lanes of PCI Express Gen 3 connectivity to the backplane. The new 18-slot chassis boasts 8 lanes per slot for a matched total system bandwidth of 24 GBps, allowing for test and measurement systems to scale well into the future.
