PXIe-3985

With the highest CPU and graphics performance on the market, we’re helping customers to increase their testing throughput and accelerate the testing process.“

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) August 20, 2014

ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced the release of the new PXIe-3985, its highest performing 3U PXI Express (PXIe) embedded controller, equipped with the quad-core 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-4700EQ processor and operating at up to 3.4 GHz clock frequency (in single-core Turbo Boost Mode). With four links x4 or two links x16 and x8 PCI Express gen 2 link capability, up to 8 GB/s of total system throughput and up to 16 GB of DDR3L 1600 MHz RAM, the PXIe-3985 is the perfect choice for applications requiring intensive data analysis or processing and high-speed data streaming, such as in wireless, radar, or RF testing environments. Our latest high performance embedded controller is being showcased in ADLINK’s booth #627 at IEEE AUTOTEST 2014 from September 15-18 at America’s Center in St. Louis, MO.

"As a sponsor member of the PXI Systems Alliance, ADLINK is continuously expanding its portfolio of PXI and PXI Express offerings with new generation Intel® processors. We’re dedicated to providing test and measurement operators with the means to overcome testing task challenges at the lowest possible time to market," said Catherine Wu, senior product director of ADLINK's Measurement and Automation Product Segment. "ADLINK leads the field with its introduction of the PXIe-3985 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor-based controller. With the highest CPU and graphics performance on the market, we’re helping customers to increase their testing throughput and accelerate the testing process."

Based on PCI Express technology, the ADLINK PXIe-3985 can offer four links x4 or two links x16 and x8 PXI Express link capability for interfacing with a PXI Express chassis backplane. When configured in this combination, with a high performance PXI Express chassis such as the ADLINK 3U 18-slot PXES-2780 chassis, maximum system throughput of up to 8 GB/s is enabled, providing an effective solution for high bandwidth applications requiring intensive data analysis or processing and data streaming. In addition, the PXIe-3985 features up to 16 GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L memory capacity, ideal for seamless execution in memory-intensive applications.

The ADLINK PXIe-3985 provides versatile I/O capability, including dual DisplayPort connectors with 4K 2K support, dual GbE ports, GPIB, four USB 2.0 ports, dual hi-speed USB 3.0 ports, and trigger I/O for advanced PXI trigger functions. Easy connection with external, standalone instruments or devices, and innovative designs—such as dual BIOS backup—reduce maintenance efforts, with fast and easy swapping of battery, storage device, and SODIMM modules to deliver high availability in testing systems.

The PXIe-3985, supporting Windows 7 32/64-bit operating systems, provides optimal performance when installed in the ADLINK 3U high capacity 18-slot PXES-2780 chassis or compact 9-slot PXES-2590 chassis. These combinations offer an ideal operating environment for a wide variety of testing and measurement applications.
