PXI Express instruments from NI

National Instruments releases the industry's first PXI Express high-speed instruments as well as the industry's first 18-slot PXI Express chassis.

The new modular instruments include the NI PXIe-5122 100MSPS, 100MHz dual-channel digitizer and the NI PXIe-6537 and NI PXIe-6536 50MHz and 25MHz 32-channel digital I/O modules. The NI PXIe-1065 18-slot chassis offers up to 1GBps per-slot dedicated bandwidth and a combination of both PXI and PXI Express slots. The new PXI Express products are suited for applications such as signal intelligence, spectral monitoring, semiconductor chip characterization and video test.

The new instruments offer the enhanced functionality of high-speed data recording and playback using the latest industry-standard bus, PCIe, which delivers up to 1GBps of bidirectional streaming throughput on a x4 PCIe link. With the NI PXIe-5122 digitizer (based on a x4 PXI Express link), engineers can capture high-speed analog signals on two simultaneous channels at 100MSPS with 14bit resolution and stream the signals across the PCIe bus at the digitizer's full rate of 400MBps to the PC memory and/or hard disk. Engineers also can use the NI PXIe-6536/37 digital I/O modules (based on a x1 PXI Express link) to stream digital waveforms to and from the module at the full 200MBps data rate.

The NI PXIe-1065 18-slot chassis complements the existing NI PXIe-1062 8-slot chassis to address higher-channel-density PXI Express-based systems. The new chassis includes a combination of PXI and PXI Express hybrid slots to accept a mix of both existing PXI modules and high-bandwidth PXI Express modules.

All of the new products integrate with a variety of software including the NI LabVIEW graphical development environment, LabVIEW SignalExpress interactive measurement software and NI TestStand test management software.

The NI PXIe-5122 digitizer is priced at $5,499 each, NI PXIe 6536/37 6 digital I/O modules is priced at $1,799 and the NI PXIe-1065 18-slot chassis is priced at $5,499.
