NI Debuts PXI Express Modules and High-Bandwidth Controllers

National Instruments launched the industry’s first data acquisition (DAQ) modules for PXI Express, the NI PXIe-6259 and NI PXIe-6251 M Series modules, which deliver fast analog and digital I/O with up to 250 MB/s dedicated per-slot bandwidth. In addition to the new PXI Express DAQ modules, NI announced four PXI Express controllers. The remote, embedded and rack-mount controllers are the industry’s highest-bandwidth controllers with up to 1 GByte/s system and slot bandwidth. PXI Express offers the industry’s highest bandwidth and highest-performance timing and synchronization capabilities as well as software and hardware compatibility with the large installed base of existing PXI systems.

The new PXI Express M Series DAQ modules feature up to 32 analog channels with 16 bit, 1.25 MS/s sampling speed; up to four analog output channels with 16 bit, 2.8 MS/s update rates; and 10 MHz digital I/O on up to 32 lines. As with other NI M Series DAQ devices, the new PXI Express modules feature the NI-STC 2 system controller, the NI-PGIA 2 amplifier and NI-MCal calibration technology for increased performance, accuracy and I/O. They are ideal for high-channel-count data acquisition, high-speed control and manufacturing test applications.
