The new PXIe-3985 from ADLINK Technology, Inc. is the company's highest performing 3U PXI Express (PXIe) embedded controller, equipped with the quad-core 4th generation Intel Core i7-4700EQ processor and operating at up to 3.4 GHz clock frequency (in single-core Turbo Boost Mode). With four links x4 or two links x16 and x8 PCI Express gen 2 link capability, up to 8 GB/s of total system throughput and up to 16 GB of DDR3L 1600 MHz RAM, the PXIe-3985 is targeted for applications requiring intensive data analysis or processing and high-speed data streaming, such as in wireless, radar, or RF testing environments. The new controller is being showcased in ADLINK’s booth #627 at IEEE AUTOTEST 2014 from September 15-18 at America’s Center in St. Louis, MO.
The ADLINK PXIe-3985 provides versatile I/O capability, including dual DisplayPort connectors with 4K 2K support, dual GbE ports, GPIB, four USB 2.0 ports, dual hi-speed USB 3.0 ports, and trigger I/O for advanced PXI trigger functions. Easy connection with external, standalone instruments or devices, and innovative designs—such as dual BIOS backup—reduce maintenance efforts, with fast and easy swapping of battery, storage device, and SODIMM modules to deliver high availability in testing systems.
The PXIe-3985, supporting Windows 7 32/64-bit operating systems, provides optimal performance when installed in the ADLINK 3U high capacity 18-slot PXES-2780 chassis or compact 9-slot PXES-2590 chassis. These combinations offer an ideal operating environment for a wide variety of testing and measurement applications.
