The NI PXIe-8135 is a high-performance Intel Core i7-3610QE processor-based embedded controller for use in PXI Express systems. With the 2.3 GHz base frequency, 3.3 GHz (single-core, Turbo Boost mode) quad-core processor, and dual-channel 1600 MHz DDR3 memory, this controller is ideal for processor-intensive modular instrumentation and DAQ applications.
The NI PXIe-8135 includes the quad-core Intel Core i7-3610QE processor. Quad-core processors contain four cores, or computing engines, in one physical package. Intel introduced Turbo Boost technology to provide performance benefits for all types of applications without the application being optimized for multicore processors. It can significantly reduce test times for processor-intensive applications.
To improve the serviceability of the NI PXIe-8135, you can quickly access in-ROM diagnostics for the hard drive and memory without requiring external third-party tools. By running these diagnostics, you can determine if you need to replace the hard drive or memory. The controller design allows for quick field replacement of critical components such as the hard drive and the memory without affecting the warranty. To ease the process of purchasing spare components, hard drive and memory upgrades are available with the NI PXIe-8135. Combining all these features significantly improves NI PXIe-8135 serviceability.
