The National Instruments PXIe-8105 is a high-performance Intel Core Duo processor T2500-based embedded controller for use in PXI Express and CompactPCI Express systems. With its 2.0 GHz dual-core processor and dual-channel 667 MHz DDR2 memory, the NI PXIe-8105 is ideal for applications requiring intensive analysis or system development. An NI PXIe-8105 embedded controller in a PXI Express chassis, such as the NI PXIe-1062Q, offers a compact, high-performance PC platform for modular instrumentation and data acquisition applications.

Dual-Core Processor
The NI PXIe-8105 includes the dual-core Intel Core Duo processor T2500. Dual-core processors contain two cores, or computing engines, in one physical processor. Dual-core processors can simultaneously execute two computing tasks, which is advantageous in multitasking environments, such as Windows XP, where multiple applications run simultaneously. Two applications, such as NI LabVIEW and Microsoft Excel, can each execute on a separate core at the same time. This improves overall system performance. Multithreaded applications such as LabVIEW take full advantage of dual-core processors because they separate their tasks into independent threads. A dual-core processor can simultaneously execute two of these threads.
