|New PXI Controllers from NI Deliver 50% Higher Performance, Gigabit
National Instruments today announced two new PXI controllers, the NI PXI-8195 and
NI PXI-8196, which are the industry’s first controllers to use the Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset. In addition,
the PXI-8196 is the first embedded controller to use the power of a 2.0 GHz Intel Pentium M 760 Processor, making it
the industry’s highest-performance embedded controller and increasing its overall performance by more than 50
percent compared to existing PXI controllers operating with the 2.5 GHz Mobile Intel Pentium 4 Processor. The new
PXI-8195 includes the 1.5 GHz Intel Celeron M 370 Processor.
Both controllers feature dual-channel DDR2 memory,
with a maximum capacity of 2 GB, and are ideal for applications requiring intensive analysis or system development,
such as ATE, military/aerospace, communications, industrial and consumer electronics applications. In addition, the
PXI-8195 and PXI-8196 both provide full-rate Gigabit Ethernet. By offering Gigabit Ethernet, the more than 1,200
available PXI/CompactPCI modules now can benefit from this high-speed interface.
“We are pleased
that National Instruments is integrating Intel mobile processors in their PXI-8196 product. The high-performance
Intel platforms including the Intel Pentium M 760 Processor and the Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset extend system
performance at lower power-consumption rates,” said Jonathan Luse, Intel Corporation marketing manager for embedded
markets and emerging countries.
Created for use in PXI and CompactPCI systems, the PXI-8196
employs an Intel Pentium M processor that delivers higher performance at lower clock rates than previous-generation
processors. The controller’s Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset provides the PCI Express interface to the Gigabit
Ethernet and to the ExpressCard/34 slot for high-speed interface to numerous peripheral I/O types. Engineers can use
an ExpressCard to add more I/O including a second Gigabit Ethernet port, 802.11 wireless LAN, removable flash
memory, IEEE 1394 (FireWire) and Bluetooth. Additional PXI-8196 integrated peripherals include four USB 2.0 ports, a
GPIB interface and both a serial and parallel port.
The PXI-8195 and PXI-8196 work with the
entire suite of National Instruments modular instruments and offer seamless integration with the NI LabVIEW
graphical development environment, as well as NI TestStand, LabWindows/CVI and other common development environments
for automated test applications such as C, C++, Visual Basic and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET. The controllers ship
with Microsoft Windows XP Professional pre-installed, saving engineers valuable time in software installation and
configuration. In addition, the PXI-8195 and PXI-8196 offer hard drive-based recovery that engineers can use to
restore their systems back to factory default if needed.
PCI eXtensions for
Instrumentation (PXI) is an open specification governed by the PXI Systems Alliance (www.pxisa.org) that defines a
rugged, CompactPCI-based platform optimized for test, measurement and control. PXI products are compatible with the
CompactPCI industrial computer standard that is supported by more than 60 member companies and more than 1,000
products. PXI offers additional features such as environmental specifications, standardized software and built-in
timing and synchronization.
