Overview

Part of the PCI to PXI Remote Control Interface Kit. The kit provides a seamless connection between a control PC’s PCI interface and a PXI chassis.

This module resides in one of the controllers PCI slots and provides two independent StarFabric serial interfaces, each capable of driving a separate PXI chassis.

The use of the StarFabric interface operating at 2.5Gb/s minimizes the impact on system speed. The PCI interface of the 51-921A supports both 32 bit and 64 bit operation and backplane speeds of 33MHz and 66MHz, ensuring the highest speed operation under all conditions. The StarFabric interface ensures the modules perform seamlessly with no impact on the test system software. 

Note: Model 51-921A supersedes model 51-921. The older non-A versions are not Windows 7 compatible but can be re-programmed, contact us for more information.
