The ADLINK PXI embedded controller, based on the Intel® processor family, is specifically suited for hybrid PXI-based testing systems, delivering a rugged yet stable platform for a wide variety of testing and measurement applications. The PXI embedded controllers sport integrated CPU, HDD or SSD, and RAM, and provide ample interface flexibility, including one Gigabit Ethernet port for LAN connection and one for controlling LXI instruments, USB ports for peripheral devices and USB instrument control, and a Micro-D GPIB connector for GPIB instrument connection.
With no need for an external PC, a complete system is housed in the PXI chassis. Embedded controllers include standard features such as integrated CPU, hard drive, memory, Ethernet, video, serial, USB, and other peripherals. Both PXI and PXI Express are available, for OS including Windows and LabVIEW Real-Time.
PXI remote control kits control PXI systems directly from desktops, or server computers. PC control of PXI consists of a PCI/PCI Express board in the computer and a PXI/PXI Express module in slot 1 of the PXI system, connected by a copper cable.
