PXI remote control and bus extension modules

13 September 2017 Test & Measurement

National Instruments announced the release of a new family of high-performance PXI remote control and bus extension modules with PCI Express Gen 3 connectivity. PCI Express Gen 3 technology delivers increased bandwidth that is critical for data intensive applications like 5G cellular research, RF record and playback, and high-channel-count data acquisition.

The PCIe-8398 host interface card communicates over a fully transparent PCI Express Gen 3 x16 link to either the single-port PXIe-8398 or dual-port PXIe-8399 remote control module to offer up to 13,7 GBps of sustained data throughput. Engineers can use the second port on the PXIe-8399 to daisy chain additional chassis, making it possible to directly interface multiple PXI Express chassis to a single host computer, whether it is a desktop or rack-mount PC.

The PXIe-8394 bus extension module supports peer-to-peer streaming up to 6,8 GBps between chassis-separated instruments with PCI Express Gen 3 connectivity such as the second-generation vector signal transceiver. In addition to multi-chassis systems, the PXIe-8394 allows high-throughput communication with peripheral devices like RAID data storage arrays or the ATCA-3671 FPGA module for ATCA. These peripherals typically operate with substantial data sets and can benefit from utilising the latest PCI

Express interfaces.
