National Instruments ups PXI game to Gen 3

In my blog, I cover the happenings in the test-and-measurement market from an industry and architectural perspective. You can find plenty of product announcements elsewhere in EDN. At Test Cafe, it is the architecture that counts—and what it may mean for you, the test engineer. Recently I covered the future of bench instrumentation and likely form factors. I’ve covered acquisitions too, and how that affects strategies of the test vendors. Sometimes, specific product announcements trigger my interest.

Such is the case with the latest PXI introduction from National Instruments. NI has just announced the first Gen 3 PXI embedded controller and chassis in the industry. Gen 3 refers to the speed of the PCIe (PCI Express) backplane data fabric that is inherent to PXI.

There’s more than just Gen 3 that contributes to NI’s speed jump. If you have the need for speed, brew yourself an espresso, and read the entire article here.
