LEVERAGING HYBRID TEST SYSTEMS FOR BEST PERFORMANCE
There are several industry standard platforms including VXI, PXI/PXI Express, LXI, GPIB and USB, each with its own benefits that make it useful for a particular application. No bus is perfect for all needs and applications, but by combining different platforms in a hybrid system, users can optimize the performance of their test systems to achieve best results.
The CMX34 is an integrated sub system that combines the high throughput of an 18-slot PXI Express mainframe for data intensive applications with a 16-slot LXI mainframe uniquely optimized for signal switching and I/O. The CMX34 can be combined with mass interface connectivity options to provide a fully integrated switching and instrumentation subsystem that includes cabling and receiver modules.
Leveraging the two platforms in a single, integrated solution, users can combine best-in-class instrumentation with best-in-class signal switching to maximize system performance.
