z3806 PCIe-to-PXIe Expansion Kit

The z3806 PCIe-PXIe expansion kit connects a host computer to a remote PXIe chassis using high bandwidth PCIe technology.

Complex testing setups require multiple PXI or PXIe modules; the z3806 offers a practical solution by adding PXI instrument slots to the host computer. In addition, the z3806 can provide up to 4 GB/s using PCIe Gen 2 x8 signaling.

The expansion kit consists of a PCIe adapter installed in the host computer, a PCIe x8 cable and a PXIe remote controller with the 3U expansion module installed in a remote PXIe chassis. PXI card detection is fast and convenient. The host computer detects PXIe modules installed in the system automatically without need of additional drivers or software.
