• PXI Systems

    Achieve high accuracy, high productivity, and higher speeds with the standard for automated test and automated measurement: NI PXI.

    What is PXI?

    software-connected pxi testers offer flexibility and scalability

    NI PXI systems provide high-performance modular instruments and other I/O modules that feature specialized synchronization and key software features for test and measurement applications from device validation to automated production test. NI is the PXI industry leader, with the broadest array of best-in-class products and services on the market.

    Industry-Standard

    NI led the creation of the PXI standards body to create an open standard, so you can augment your NI system with specialty modules from up to 60 other vendors.

    ""

    High-Performance

    NI PXI hardware utilizes the latest technology, incorporating powerful multicore processors, FPGAs, and other technology to increase measurement range and performance.

    ""

    Scalable

    PXI’s architecture makes it possible to synchronize measurements across multiple modules or multiple chassis, so you can add to your systems as requirements change.

    ""

    Accurate

    PXI offers some of the highest frequency and accuracy specifications, so you can ensure your test systems deliver the production test results you need.

    PXI System Components

    PXI systems are composed of three main hardware components: Chassis, controller, and modules. System software is both reconfigurable and customizable.

    The chassis—the PXI system backbone—is comparable to a desktop PC’s mechanical enclosure and motherboard. It provides power, cooling, and a communication bus to the system, and supports multiple instrumentation modules within the same enclosure. PXI uses commercial PC-based PCI and PCI Express bus technology while combining rugged CompactPCI modular packaging, as well as key timing and synchronization features. Chassis range in size from four to 18 slots to fit the needs of any application, whether you require a portable, benchtop, rack-mount, or embedded system.

    Controller

    integrated pxi controllers contain everything you need to run your pxi system without an external pc

    PXI controllers are either integrated or remote. Integrated controllers contain everything you need to run your PXI system without an external PC, while remote controllers let you control your PXI system from desktops, laptops, or server computers.
