PRODUCTRONICA, Munich - National Instruments has introduced six PXI products including a real-time embedded controller, PXI Express system expansion modules and high-speed data storage products for streaming data to and from disk.
These come on top of the of more than 40 other NI PXI products added this year.
The NI PXIe-8100 RT embedded controller incorporates the Intel Atom D410 processor and is designed for deploying embedded real-time measurement and control applications.
The NI PXIe-8364/74 are PXI Express remote control modules that make it possible to interface multiple PXI Express chassis directly to a single host computer using any expansion topology, without requiring complex custom solutions.
NI also announced upgraded NI redundant array of independent drives (RAID) products for high-speed record and playback, RF test and high-channel-count data acquisition, including a 24 TB option for the NI HDD-8265 high-speed data storage enclosure. With these options, 100 MHz of real-time bandwidth can be streamed for more than 13 hours continuously.
For advanced parallel signal intelligence (SIGINT) and communication intelligence (COMMINT) applications, four NI HDD-8265 modules can be combined in a single PXI Express chassis to achieve up to 2.8 GB per second of streaming data to and from disk. Other new NI RAID options include 3TB HDD and 1TB SSD versions of the NI 8260 in-chassis RAID module.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
