Entry-level PXI/PXIe platforms boost performance, bandwidth

September 13, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Adlink Technology’s entry-level PXI and PXI Express (PXIe) platforms are configured for PXI testing system startup users.

PXES-2301 is an all-hybrid, 6-slot compact PXIe chassis with system bandwidth up to 8 Gbyte/sec. PXIe-3935 and PXI-3930 are embedded controllers with Intel Celeron 2000E 2.2 GHz processors delivering up to 50% increase in computing power and as much as eight times the bandwidth of alternative offerings.

 

The PXES-2301 6-slot PXIe chassis provides all-hybrid peripheral slots for data throughput up to 8 GB/s, optimization for industry use with enhanced heat dissipation and maximum PXI platform stability, portability and flexibility of deployment with available rack-mount option and carrying handle, and Adlink’s ChassisWatch smart system monitoring control utility, reporting full chassis status including fan speed, system voltages, and internal temperature.

 

The entry-level PXES-2301 accepts installation of CompactPCI, PXI, CompactPCI Express, and PXI Express modules in any peripheral slot, for maximum flexibility. Compact construction, light 5.85 kg weight, and carrying handle and rubber feet enable complete portability: half-rack size with efficient feature layout eases rack-mounting, such that two PXES-2301 chassis can be accommodated in a single rack-mount system. Cooling and alarm technologies maximize PXI platform stability and increase the life of the chassis. ChassisWatch smart system monitoring control utility tracks chassis power and temperature, adjusting fans and triggering alarms when user-configured limits are met, reducing maintenance cost and effort.

 

PXIe-3935 and PXI-3930 PXI Express /PXI embedded controllers, based on the Intel Celeron 2000E 2.2 GHz processor, deliver maximum system throughput at 8 GB/sec and 132 MB/sec respectively, increased as much as eight times over that of similar product offerings. They provide two DisplayPort connectors, allowing connection of two 4K UHD monitors at the same time with independent displays, dual USB 3.0 connections for high speed peripheral devices, dual GbE ports for connection to LXI instruments, and built-in GPIB connection for hybrid PXI-based testing systems control.
