NI Announces New PXI Remote Control and Bus Extension Modules for High-Throughput Applications

AUSTIN, Texas–()–NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of platform-based systems that enable
engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering
challenges, announced today 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.

“As technologies converge into smarter devices under test, you
increasingly need to build smarter test and measurement systems that
leverage the latest processing and data movement capabilities in order
to lower the cost of test or improve coverage,” said Luke Schreier,
director of automated test marketing at NI. “This new family of remote
control modules augments our existing portfolio of PCI Express Gen 3
chassis and embedded controllers and more than doubles the throughput
for multichassis systems.”

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 GB/s 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 GB/s between chassis-separated instruments with PCI Express Gen 3
connectivity such as the second-generation
vector signal transceiver
. In addition to multichassis systems, the
PXIe-8394…
