ADLINK Introduces a Portable PXI Express Chassis with Fast, Versatile Thunderbolt™ 3 Interfaces

The compact and affordable PXES-2314T test and measurement platform eliminates need to trade-off cost, convenience or performance

Summary:
● ADLINK’s new PXES-2314T is a 4-slot Thunderbolt™ 3 PXI Express chassis that accommodates a wide range of test and measurement applications
● Compact system configuration enhances portability and enables mobile test applications without sacrificing system bandwidth
● Maintains the performance and flexibility advantages of PXI Express but in a more affordable and convenient form factor

Taipei, Taiwan – January 21, 2021

ADLINK Technology Inc., a global leader in edge computing, has introduced the PXES-2314T, a new generation PXI Express chassis with versatile, high bandwidth Thunderbolt™ 3 interfaces. Unlike traditional PXI Express systems, which are usually large and require complex setup, the PXES-2314T is a compact test and measurement platform that offers the performance and flexibility of PXI Express but in a portable system, requiring only the small PXES-2314T chassis, a notebook PC with Thunderbolt 3 ports, and desired peripheral modules.

“The dual Thunderbolt 3 ports in the PXES-2314T are an important evolution for easing test system connectivity,” said Tim Juan, senior director of IoT Solutions and Technology at ADLINK. “Previously, a typical PXI bridge setup required a desktop expansion card, chassis module, and connecting cable, severely limiting portability. The greater versatility of the PXES-2314T platform makes possible a broad range of more flexible and mobile test and measurement applications.”

The PXES-2314T features two Thunderbolt 3 ports for host PC connections, which use USB Type-C connectors and support USB power delivery up to 60W and system bandwidth of 40Gb/s. The chassis offers four PXI Express Hybrid slots: two PXIe Hybrid slots up to PCIe Gen2 x1 and two PXIe Hybrid slots up to PCIe Gen3 x4. The PXES-2314T measures 207.9 x 148.4 x 220.5mm (8.19″ x 5.84″ x 8.68″), providing a compact system that delivers high performance but saves space, whether on a benchtop or the factory floor.

The 4-slot PXES-2314T adds a portable test and measurement solution to complement ADLINK’s existing 6-,9-, and 18-slot high-density chassis. Targeted use cases for the PXES-2314T include performing highly accurate mobile quality control testing in the production line without sacrificing feature functions or high performance. R&D tests and experiments can be performed more flexibly and cost-effectively, without requiring investments in older, more cumbersome and expensive PXIe systems. The more portable PXES-2314T also supports use cases that focus on field troubleshooting, hands-on demos and training for an array of applications in a range of environments.

Cadence Celsius Thermal Solver

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Electrical-thermal co-simulation can dramatically improve the system design process, allowing thermal design adaptation to be done much earlier. The Cadence Celsius Thermal Solver is a complete electrical-thermal co-simulation solution for the full hierarchy of electronic systems from ICs to physical enclosures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with CT Kao of Cadence Design Systems about how the Celsius Thermal Solver can help detect and mitigate thermal issues early in the design process.
