National Instruments is introducing the industry’s first all-hybrid PXI Express chassis featuring PCI Express 2.0 ×8 links to every slot for increased data throughput, resulting in lower test times and reduced cost of test. The hybrid slot connectors deliver flexibility in PXI and PXI Express module slot replacement, while the addition of hot-swappable fans and an easily replaceable power supply improves system availability in high-performance applications.
The NI PXIe-1085 all-hybrid chassis gives engineers the flexibility to combine more high-performance instrumentation in a single chassis for multifunctional automated test systems while maintaining backward compatibility with existing instrumentation. This new chassis features PCI Express 2.0 x8 links to every slot and offers best-in-class bandwidth of 4 GB/s/slot and 12 GB/s total system bandwidth.
Eric Starkloff, NI Vice President of Product Marketing for Systems Platforms, says: “With the release of the NI PXIe-1085 all-hybrid-slot chassis, NI continues to demonstrate its leadership in PXI, offering unrivaled performance, flexibility and value. This chassis expands the reach of PXI into even more demanding high-performance streaming applications such as RF record and playback while preserving backward compatibility with PXI modules released in the past 15 years.”
