PXIe single-slot embedded controller enhances test with PCIe Gen 4 capability
At Productronica 2023, Pickering Interfaces is introducing the 43-920-001 single-slot PXIe embedded controller, designed to enhance testing capabilities.
The module offers the world’s first future-ready PCIe Gen 4 capability in a single-slot PXIe embedded controller, claimed Pickering.
The PXI-5 PXI Express Hardware Spec. Rev.2.0-compliant controller is powered by an 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor, combined with 32Gbyte DDR4 memory and a 1Tbyte m.2 NVMe SSD. It supports high bandwidth applications with advanced PCIe Gen 4 and dual 2500BASE-T system interconnectivity with maximum system throughput of 14Gbyte per second using either a four- or two-link configuration.
Lee Huckle, chassis product manager at Pickering Interfaces, said “Our new controller is the most compact and powerful 3U one-slot embedded controller available for the PXI Express and CompactPCI Express platforms . . . With its high-performance specification and future-proof interface capabilities, it is designed to handle the most demanding test and measurement applications.”
The single-slot controller is suitable for Pickering’s family of PXIe chassis, including the new 42-927-101 21-slot fully hybrid PXIe chassis (launched at productronica 2023).
Pickering also offers a turnkey factory configuration service to streamline set-up, including Windows license and driver installations and optional installation of Pickering’s PXI or PXIe switch and simulation modules.
