What is PXI platform?

Compare a PXI system to a commercial desktop PC. PXI (PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation) is a proven PC-based platform for measurement and automation systems. It provides power, cooling, and a communication bus to support multiple instrumentation modules within the same enclosure.

What is NI PXI chassis?

Chassis. The chassis—the PXI system backbone—is comparable to a desktop PC’s mechanical enclosure and motherboard. It provides power, cooling, and a communication bus to the system, and supports multiple instrumentation modules within the same enclosure.

What is the difference between PCI and PXI?

A PXI Express (PXIe) chassis uses the PCI Express serial interface to connect from its system slot to the peripherals. As PCIe is a point to point connection system each connection is defined as a Bus number and Device 0 (no other devices appear on that slot). As with PCI, there is a 256 Bus limit.

What is PXI used for?

What is a PXI controller?

Provides a high-performance, compact embedded computer solution for PXI, CompactPCI, and PXI Express systems. PXI Controllers come with standard features such as an integrated CPU, hard drive, RAM, Ethernet, video, keyboard/mouse, serial, USB, and other peripheral I/O.

What does a PXI controller do?

PXI controllers are either embedded or remote. Embedded controllers contain everything you need to run your PXI system without an external PC, while remote controllers let you manage your PXI system from desktops, laptops, or server computers.

What is PXI backplane?

The PXI backplane includes a common Reference Clock that you can use to synchronize multiple modules. It also offers capabilities such as a multidrop trigger bus and a matched trace length star trigger network for higher performance synchronization.

What is a PXI assessment?

PXI, short for PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation, is a rugged PC-based platform that offers a solution for measurement and automation systems. PXI’s mechanical, electrical, and software features define complete systems for test and measurement, data acquisition, and manufacturing applications.

What is the difference between PXI and PXIe?

PXI Express or PXIe is a subset of the PXI standard that replaces PXI’s parallel data bus with a high speed serial interface. PXIe provides the most advantages for modular instruments like digitizers or arbitrary waveform generators which often need to transfer large amounts of data.

How many types of PXI controllers are there?

Is PXI obsolete?

Obsolescence. As of the time of this writing, you can buy both NI PXI and NI PXIe-based hardware. However, PXIe is the natural evolution of PXI, so over time it’ll likely dominate new hardware offerings. All other things being equal (e.g., price, performance), we’d generally lean toward using a PXIe.

What is a PXI hybrid slot?

Hardware: PXI Express chassis provide hybrid peripheral slots that accept PXI Express peripheral modules and hybrid slot-compatible PXI peripheral modules. These peripheral slots deliver signaling for PCI and PCI Express.

What are the features of a PXI chassis?

Houses PXI modules and connects them with a high-performance backplane that offers timing and synchronization capabilities. PXI Chassis are compatible with PXI, PXI Express, and PXI hybrid modules and meet the cooling requirements of the most power-demanding PXI modules.

Which is the industry leader in PXI Systems?

NI PXI systems provide high-performance modular instruments and other I/O modules that feature specialized synchronization and key software features for test and measurement applications from device validation to automated production test. NI is the PXI industry leader, with the broadest array of best-in-class products and services on the market.

How much does a PXI power supply cost?

PXI Chassis Model COMPARE (0) Price Slot Count Chassis Power Supply Type System Timing Slot PXIe-1062Q $ 4,687.00 8 AC Yes PXIe-1065 $ 8,203.00 18 AC Yes PXIe-1066DC $ 14,397.00 18 DC Yes PXIe-1071 $ 1,274.00 4 AC No

Why was the PXI standards body created by Ni?

NI led the creation of the PXI standards body to create an open standard, so you can augment your NI system with specialty modules from up to 60 other vendors. NI PXI hardware utilizes the latest technology, incorporating powerful multicore processors, FPGAs, and other technology to increase measurement range and performance.
