Based on the 9th-gen Intel Xeon E processor, the device’s powerful compute power enables parallel processing
Specifically designed for PXI Express-based testing systems, here’s presenting the Intel Xeon E-2276ME-based PXIe-3988 server-grade PXIe controller. This new offering by ADLINK Technology combines state-of-the-art Intel Core processors and up to 64GB of DDR4 2400MHz memory to run up to 4 independent tasks simultaneously. The PXIe-3988’s rugged and stable platform is suitable for a variety of testing and measurement applications.
System integrators and equipment manufacturers in industries ranging from aerospace to semiconductors can benefit from PXIe-3988 by:
- Distributing processing loads across 6 Xeon cores to significantly reduce processing times for intensive signal and data applications such as radio frequency (RF) tests and hardware-in-the-loop (HL) simulations.
- Using an auto-configured PCIe switch for supporting four links x4 or two links x8 PXI Express links with maximum system throughput up to 16 GB/s by PCI Express 3.0 bus.
- Incorporating interface flexibility for hybrid PXI-based testing systems provided by two DisplayPort connectors, dual USB 3.0 connections for high-speed peripheral devices, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB 2.0 ports for peripheral devices and USB instrument control, and a Micro-D GPIB connector for GPIB instrument connection.
The PXIe-3988 Express embedded controller delivers other benefits for test and measurement applications, including fast (2.8 – 4.5 GHz clock speed) hexa-core processing, cache optimisation and up to 64 GB memory in an embedded 3U format factor.
Significant compute power enables complex software and programming models to be used with modern software development trends. The PXIe-3988 provides workstation performance in a compact size compatible with a standard PXI Express chassis.
“With the rapid growth of testing applications in several industries, customers have high-performance requirements for applications in industries such as the electric vehicle, telecommunications, semiconductor, data centre and optics,” said Jeremy Wu, Director of IoT Solutions & Technology (IST) business unit, ADLINK. “The PXIe-3988 is a powerful yet budget-conscious choice for test and measurement that meets the needs of these demanding applications.
