Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced a high-performance 14-slot AXIe chassis and system module. This unique technology enables multi-module system capabilities that allow test engineers working in radar, antenna, high-energy physics and digital to set up large systems with all modules in a single chassis, providing better module-to-module synchronization and performance.
Agilent’s new M9514A AXIe chassis and M9521A system module provide a high-performance platform for large channel count systems with a single connection to the host computer. A test engineer can connect multiple AXIe and PXIe chassis for ultimate system-design flexibility.
The 14-slot M9514A AXIe chassis and M9521A system module meet AXIe 1.0 and 2.0 specifications and provide:
- •Front-panel Gen 2 PCIe x8 for connecting multiple chassis and gigabit LAN interfaces to connect to the host computer.
- •62 differential local bus lines with very large data paths between adjacent modules.
- •Innovative cooling design—high power with 200W cooling per slot.
Instrument control is enabled through a soft front panel and programmatic interfaces tuned to the user’s choice of application development environment. Using Agilent’s IO Libraries Suite allows fast and easy integration into existing test environments.
