  • 7 m maximum cable length, with rugged screw-in connectors
  • Sustained throughput - 160 MB/s (two chassis), 110 MB/s (single chassis)
  • Direct PC control of PXI/CompactPCI
  • Software-compatible with PCI-based PXI controllers, such as MXI-3 and MXI-4
  • Software-transparent MXI-Express link that requires no programming
  • NI PCIe-8361 is a low-profile interface; low-profile and standard brackets are shipped with board
  • Configure Complete PXI System
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.
