New NI PXI Express Chassis Deliver Added Value and Performance to Automated Test and Control Applications


National Instruments announced two new PXI Express chassis that deliver added value and performance to automated test and control applications at the same price as similar PXI chassis. Engineers can use the NI PXIe-1078 nine-slot and NI PXIe-1071 four-slot chassis to take advantage of the latest PXI Express modules and controllers with the flexibility of backward compatibility with existing PXI modules.

“With the launch of the PXIe-1078 and PXIe-1071, NI now offers 20 different PXI and PXI Express chassis, delivering the most flexibility and value for engineers designing PXI systems,” said Eric Starkloff, vice president of product marketing for NI. “Whether you need to optimize your system for cost, size, streaming performance or legacy compatibility, NI brings the most complete offering to market.”

The NI PXIe-1078 nine-slot chassis features 1 GB/s total system bandwidth. It accepts up to a four-slot wide embedded controller in one slot and supports up to eight peripheral PXI Express slots with five slots compatible with both PXI Express and PXI modules. In addition to the benefits of a PXI Express chassis, the NI PXIe-1078 includes one more module slot than the same priced NI PXI-1042 standard eight-slot PXI chassis. With a shallow depth of 214.2 millimeters (8.43 inches), the NI PXIe-1078 also delivers higher slot-counts to applications with tight space requirements.

The NI PXIe-1071 four-slot chassis offers 3 GB/s total system bandwidth. It accepts up to a four-slot wide controller in one slot, with three slots available for either PXI Express or PXI modules. This chassis offers more than 20 times the bandwidth of the same priced NI PXI-1031 standard four-slot PXI chassis. Both chassis feature a compact form factor and temperature range of zero to 50 degrees Celsius.

The chassis is a fundamental part of a PXI system, and all NI chassis deliver optimal reliability, cooling, acoustical and electrical performance. The new chassis fully support specification-compliant PXI hardware from NI as well as third parties and include capabilities for both PXI and PXI Express modules to preserve existing module investments. Functioning as part of a software-defined measurement system, these chassis integrate with NI software, including the NI LabVIEW graphical development environment and NI TestStand test management software, to address next-generation test and control requirements.
