PCI Express is an evolution of PCI and offers a new level of innovation in the PC industry. The single biggest benefit of PCI Express architecture is the dedicated bus bandwidth provided by independent data transfer lines. Unlike PCI, in which 132 MB/s of bandwidth is shared among all devices, PCI Express uses independent data lanes that are each capable of data transfer up to 250 MB/s. For measurement applications, this means higher-sustained sampling and data throughput rates, and multiple devices do not have to compete for time on the bus.
Designed for performance, NI X Series data acquisition boards for PCI Express have guaranteed measurement accuracy. You can use them in a wide variety of applications, including laboratory automation, scientific research, design validation, manufacturing test, and embedded OEM applications. To learn more about absolute accuracy specifications, refer to the Specifications tab on individual product pages.
NI-STC3 timing and synchronization technology delivers advanced timing features, including independent analog and digital timing engines, retriggerable measurement tasks, and four counter/timers with more functionality than ever before.
