New chassis help engineers make best price and performance choices

Keysight Technologies have introduced three new PXIe chassis with different sizes and performance characteristics. The new chassis include the company’s 10-slot Gen 3 chassis, designed for high-performance, benchtop, and research and development applications; their cost-effective five-slot Gen 1 chassis; and the redesigned 18-slot Gen 2 chassis, with improved power supply and new features which improve system integration.
Optimized for module cooling and high-performance, their Gen 3 M9010A 10-slot chassis delivers industry-leading sound power levels combined with exceptional per-slot cooling to meet the demands of high-performance PXIe modules. The 10-slot chassis provides a superior platform for small channel-count research and development applications, while the previously introduced Gen 3 M9019A 18-slot chassis enables test of multi-channel, high-performance manufacturing applications, such as MIMO and PA/FEM. When used with their PXIe high-performance system modules and PC host adapters, the Gen 3 PXI chassis enable up to 16 GB/s system bandwidth to an external PC—an industry first.
“We are committed to meeting the needs of engineers by providing a wide set of choices in PXI infrastructure, ranging from basic to industry-leading, high-data bandwidth,” said Neil Martin, Keysight director of corporate marketing. “The smaller footprint chassis now offer the choice of a high-bandwidth, Gen 3 communications backplane, as well as basic performance at a lower cost.”
