/content/content/64143/01 NI-2.jpgNational Instruments expands its presence in the PXI arena with six modules that include a real-time embedded controller, PXI Express system expansion modules, and high-speed data-storage products for streaming data to and from disk. The PXIe-8100 RT embedded controller enlists an Intel Atom D410 processor and targets embedded real-time measurement and control applications. A duo, the PXIe-8364/74 embark as the company’s first PXI Express remote control modules that allow users to interface multiple PXI Express chassis directly to a single host computer using any expansion topology. Upgraded RAID units for high-speed record and playback, RF test, and high-channel-count data acquisition include a 24-TB option for the HDD-8265 data storage enclosure. With the option, users can stream 100 MHz of real-time bandwidth for more than 13 hours continuously. For advanced parallel signal intelligence and communication intelligence applications, they can combine NI HDD-8265 modules in a single PXI Express chassis to achieve up to 2.8 GB/s of streaming data to and from disk. Other RAID options include 3TB HDD and 1TB SSD versions of the NI 8260 in-chassis RAID module. Prices start from $999 for the NI PXIe-8100 embedded controller, $799 for the NI PXIe-8364/74 system expansion modules, and $3,199 for the NI 826x RAID enclosures. NATIONAL INSTRUMENTS, Austin, TX.
