ADLINK Technology rolled out the PCIe-to-6U CompactPCI/PXI expansion kit. The kit includes the PCIe-8560 PCI Express host board, the PXI-8656/6U remote system controller, and an expansion cable. The PCIe-to-6U kit utilizes the 2.5 Gbps high-speed PCI Express bus to provide over 110 MB/s of sustained data transfer rate at distances up to 7 meters. The kit also enables fast and convenient detection of any installed cards in the expansion chassis without requiring additional drivers or software installation. The PCIe-to-6U CompactPCI/PXI expansion kit is now available for a list price of $1,155.
The PCIe-to-6U CompactPCI/PXI expansion kit is ideal for applications with high-density I/O requirements — such as telecommunication systems, mass production testing, and military/aerospace by providing direct control of 6U CompactPCI/PXI modules via the high-bandwidth, low-latency PCI Express interface.
The PCIe-to-6U CompactPCI/PXI expansion kit supports up to 7 devices in a remote 6U CompactPCI/PXI chassis. The control of the 6U CompactPCI/PXI chassis through the PCIe-8560 PCI Express host board is transparent to software applications and drivers. All CompactPCI and PXI modules installed in the remote chassis will operate as if they are directly installed in the host system. ADLINK’s 15-slot 6U CompactPCI/PXI chassis, the PXIS-3320 is also available for use as a remote chassis.
