The NI PXI-1042 eight-slot backplane is designed for a wide range of embedded, control, and test and measurement applications. It has seven PXI peripheral slots and one PXI controller slot that can accept up to a four-slot-wide controller. The PXI backplane is compatible with both PXI- and CompactPCI-compliant modules. The backplane features a low-jitter 10 MHz reference clock for device synchronization, and, by programmatically configuring the trigger routing modules on the backplane, you can route triggers between devices with ease.
This backplane is also available in a rugged, industrial chassis, the NI PXI-1042. By choosing an NI chassis, you have a thoroughly designed system that meets harsh environmental, safety, and EMC specifications. For more information about the chassis, follow the link under the Resources tab.
