Adlink Technology recently released entry-level PXI and PXI Express (PXIe) platforms for PXI testing system startup users that completes its PXI portfolio, which encompasses high performance, mainstream and entry-level product classes benefiting a range of user profiles.
The three new products include PXES-2301, an all-hybrid, 6-slot compact PXIe chassis with system bandwidth up to eight GB/s; PXIe-3935 and PXI-3930 embedded controllers with Intel Celeron 2000E 2.2GHz processors, delivering up to 50 percent increase in computing power and as much as eight times the bandwidth of available market offerings.
PXES-2301 provides compact PXIe chassis with up to eight GB/s system bandwidth; six-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, leading portability and flexibility of deployment with available rackmount 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 supports a variety of applications, accepting installation of CompactPCI, PXI, CompactPCI Express, and PXI Express modules in any peripheral slot for maximum flexibility. Compact construction, light 5.85kg weight, and carrying handle and rubber feet enable complete portability. While the half-rack size with efficient feature layout eases rackmounting, such that even two PXES-2301 chassis can be accommodated in a single rackmount system.
The PXES-2301 chassis is efficient and low-maintenance, securing the entire system with cooling and alarm technologies that maximize PXI platform stability and increase the life of the chassis. In addition, the smart system comes as a monitoring control utility, chassis power and temperature are tracked, adjusting fans accordingly and triggering alarms when user-configured limits are met, reducing maintenance cost and effort.
PXIS-3935/PXI-3930 embedded controllers deliver increased computing performance and data throughput at an enhanced price point. Adlink PXIe-3935 and PXI-3930 PXI Express/PXI embedded controllers deliver maximum system throughput at 8GB/s and 132 MB/s respectively, increasing as much as eight times that of similar product offerings.
Specifically conceived for hybrid PXI Express-based testing systems, the PXIe-3935 delivers a rugged and stable platform for a variety of testing and measurement applications. It also provides ample interface flexibility, including two DisplayPort connectors, allowing connection to two monitors, dual USB 3.0 connections for high speed peripheral devices, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, with one for LAN connection and the other for controlling LXI instruments, four USB 2.0 ports for peripheral devices and USB instrument control, a Micro-D GPIB connector for GPIB instrument connection, and one RS-232/422/485 D-SUB9 connector for hybrid PXI-based testing systems control.
The PXIe-3935 and PXI-3930 reduce maintenance efforts with replaceable battery and upgradable storage and SODIMM modules. Backup BIOS also eases recovery in the event of a main BIOS crash.
The PXIe-3935 and PXI-3930 provide substantial interface flexibility, including 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.
