High-performance, Gen 3 PXIe chassis/system

New Products |
By Graham Prophet



Keysight’s Gen 3 PXIe chassis and set of Gen 3 system components has been 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, where multi-chassis configuration flexibility (star and daisy-chain) is available without using PXIe instrument slots.

 

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 can be re-configured for daisy-chaining and to 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.
