- Extends VXI/VME to several mainframes using MXI-2 bus
- Transparent interrupts between mainframes
- 38 Mbytes/s maximum DMA transfer rate using D64
- Automatic MXI-2 cable termination simplifies multiple mainframe expansion
The National Instruments VXI-MXI-2 and VME-MXI-2 interface modules can be used as single-slot VMEbus or VXIbus extenders. The VXI-MXI-2 conforms to the VXIbus Mainframe Extender Specification (VXI-6) standardized by the VXIbus Consortium. You can install the VXI-MXI-2 extender in Slot 0 or in any other slot of a VXIbus mainframe. For VME-MXI-2, you can install it in the leftmost slot of a VME chassis to be the VMEbus system controller or in any other slot.
