Gen 3 PXIe chassis and system components

13 July 2016 Test & Measurement

New from Keysight Technologies comes a Gen 3 PXIe chassis and a set of Gen 3 system components designed for complex, high-performance applications. Doubling the system bandwidth, the new products improve data streaming for capture/playback applications, such as 5G and electronic warfare. The products also provide a superior platform for large multi-channel and multi-chassis PXIe test systems for applications such as MIMO and PA/FEM.

The products include an 18-slot PXIe chassis with x8 Gen 3 PCIe links to each slot, a set of single and dual-port Gen 3 PXIe system modules and PC host cards, and an improved PXIe embedded controller, now capable of Gen 3 performance.

The M9019A Gen 3 PXIe 18-slot chassis provides a high-performance system platform with a number of improvements, including a Gen 3 backplane with an x8 PCIe link to each slot and x24 (two-link) system slot; two front panel SMB trigger ports providing access to PXI Trig (0:7); one-button power control for multi-chassis power sequencing for large configurations; and a new power supply with more power for PXIe modules.

A series of PXIe system modules and PC host adaptors designed for performance and system configuration flexibility support the new M9019A chassis. Together they provide up to 16 GBps system bandwidth to an external PC. Developed for Gen 3 PC slots, the M9048B and M9049A PC host adaptors provide a connection between PC and chassis that is up to x16. Users also can configure the M9049A to provide x8 links to two chassis – either AXIe or PXIe.

The M9022A and M9023A PXIe host modules are used to establish up to a x16 Gen 3 link to the chassis. The M9023A is easily reconfigured for daisy-chaining and provide a Gen 3 x 8 link between chassis. The M9024A PXI system module adds I/O connectivity with a single cable connection to the host PC.

The M9037A PXIe high-performance embedded controller is now qualified for Gen 3 PXIe backplane performance when used in the M9019A chassis. This enables system designers to fully benefit from the improved backplane speed of the chassis.
