With NI PXI-PCIe836x kits, you can control PXI and CompactPCI systems from your PCI Express-equipped desktop or server PC through a fully transparent, high-bandwidth cabled MXI-Express link. The MXI-Express link consists of a PCI Express board in the PC, connected via a MXI-Express cable to a PXI module in slot 1 of a PXI chassis. The PCI Express board is available in two configurations. The NI PXI-PCIe8361 kit includes a PCI Express board with one x1 (“by one”) PCI Express link that provides up to 110 MB/s of sustained throughput when cabled to a PXI chassis. In the NI PXI-PCIe8362 kit, the PCI Express board has two x1 PCI Express links, each of which you can cable to individual PXI chassis to provide up to a total of 160 MB/s of sustained throughput. The NI PXI-8360 module, used in both kits, implements a PCI Express-to-PCI bridge. With MXI-Express, you can use PXI modules as if they are PCI boards directly installed in your PC. To configure a complete PXI system based on a MXI-Express controller, visit ni.com/pxiadvisor.
