Smart chassis combine PXIe, hybrid slots, and PXI-1
The PXI Express (PXIe) product portfolio at Marvin Test Solutions(MTS) has been expanded with the introduction of three new PXIe chassis. The chassis offer a combination of PXIe, hybrid slots, and PXI-1, allowing users to configure the ideal combination of resources for general purpose as well as high-bandwidth test applications.
Like MTS’ other PXI chassis, all three support integral Smart functions including system power supply, slot temperature, and fan speed control/monitoring as well as PXI trigger mapping.
“These new additions to our PXI Express product portfolio provide the advanced features and capabilities that our customers look for when designing a modular and scalable test system, “ said Steve Sargeant, Marvin Test Solutions’ CEO. “The flexbility and open architecture of PXI and PXI Express make it possible to configure the right system for today’s requirements, and to upgrade and add resources when new requirements emerge.”
The GX7100e Series are 14-slot PXIe 3U/6U combination Smart chassis with a 4x4 Gen2 backplane, and support both external and embedded controller configurations.
The combination of 3U and 6U slots provides versatility and flexibility in a compact footprint.
The GX7205 and GX7215 are high-power chassis that are part of the GX7200 Series, and feature 4x4 PXIe lane architecture with 21 slots, accommodating up to 20 instruments plus a single-slot controller.
The GX7200 Series chassis support both external and embedded controller configurations. The chassis feature a 1400W system power supply for high power, high performance applications and the cooling necessary to dissipate the additional heat.
The GX7100e will be featured at AUTOTESTCON, (September 11 – 14) in Schaumburg, Illinois.
