SANTA ROSA, CA --- Keysight Technologies, Inc. announces a Gen 3 PXIe chassis and set of Gen 3 system components designed for complex, high-performance applications. Doubling the system bandwidth, the new products improve data streaming for capture/playback applications, such as 5G and electronic warfare. The Gen 3 products also provide a superior platform for large multi-channel and multi-chassis PXIe test systems for applications, such as MIMO and PA/FEM.
The products include an 18-slot PXIe chassis with x8 Gen 3 PCIe links to each slot, a set of single and dual-port Gen 3 PXIe system modules and PC host cards, and an improved PXIe embedded controller, now capable of Gen 3 performance.
The M9019A Gen 3 PXIe 18-slot chassis provides a high-performance system platform with a number of improvements including:
· Gen 3 backplane with an x8 PCIe link to each slot and x24 (two-link) system slot
· Two front panel SMB trigger ports providing access to PXI Trig (0:7)
· One-button power control for multi-chassis power sequencing for large configurations
· New power supply with more power for PXIe modules
A series of PXIe system modules and PC host adapters designed for performance and system configuration flexibility support the new M9019A chassis. Together they provide up to 16 GB/s system bandwidth to an external PC, an industry first.
· Developed for Gen 3 PC slots, the M9048B and M9049A PC host adapters provide a connection between PC and chassis that is up to x16. Users also can configure the M9049A to provide x8 links to two chassis—either AXIe or PXIe.
· The M9022A and M9023A PXIe host modules are used to establish up to a x16 Gen 3 link to the chassis. The M9023A is easily re-configured for daisy-chaining and provide a Gen 3 x8 link between chassis.
· The M9024A PXI system modules adds I/O connectivity with a single cable connection to the host PC.
The M9037A PXIe high performance embedded controller is now qualified for Gen 3 PXIe backplane performance when used in the M9019A chassis. This enables system designers to fully benefit from the improved backplane speed of the chassis.
