New PXIe Backplane from Elma Bustronic integrates PCIe into the PXI architecture

Elma Bustronic's new 3U 17-slot backplane meets the PXI Express Hardware Specification Revision 1.0 (with X1 PCIe connections).

Designed for OEM embedded control and highly integrated test and measurement applications ,  the backplane integrates PCIe in to the PXI architecture.

Specific uses include automated test equipment, GPIB-based modular instrumentation, signal generation and analysis as well as high channel-count measurement and data acquisition and control. 

The new backplane features one system slot controller and one timing controller slot as well as 15 peripheral slots, each with a PCIe Gen 1 1X lane to the controller.  PXI Express, based on PCI Express, offers high-bandwidth PCI Express connections to modules, enabling up to 2.5 GB/s per direction to PXI Express and CompactPCI Express modules.
