ADLINK Technology Inc. introduces PXIe-3985, a new high performing 3U 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.

The PXIe-3985 embedded controller offers 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.

According to Catherine Wu, Senior Product Director of ADLINK's Measurement and Automation Product Segment, ADLINK, as a sponsor member of the PXI System Alliance, is continuously expanding its portfolio of PXI and PXI Express offerings with new generation Intel processors.

She adds that ADLINK leads the field in its introduction of the PXIe-3985 4th gen Intel Core i7 processor-based controller. The high market-leading CPU and graphic performance will help customers 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.

Versatile I/O capability in the ADLINK PXIe-3985 embedded controllers include dual Display Port 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. High availability in testing systems is ensured thanks to easy connection with external standalone instruments or devices and innovative design features such as dual BIOS backup, reduced maintenance efforts, with fast and easy swapping of battery, storage device, and SODIMM modules.

Supporting Windows 7 32/64-bit operating systems, the PXIe-3985 is optimised when installed in the ADLINK 3U high capacity 18-slot PXES-2780 chassis or compact 9-slot PXES-2590 chassis.
