The z3975 Embedded Controller, based on the Intel Core i5 processor, is specifically designed for hybrid PXI Express based testing systems. It provides a rugged and stable operating environment for a variety testing and measurement applications.
Combining state-of-the-art Intel Core i5-520E 2.4 GHz processors, and up to 8 GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 memory, the z3975 utilizes two separate computing cores on a single processor, enabling execution of two independent tasks simultaneously in a multi-tasking environment. With a configurable PCIe switch, the z3975 Embedded Controller can support four links x4 or two links x8 PXI Express link capability, with maximum system throughput of up to 2 GB/s.
Flexible Scalability with Versatile Configurations
The z3975 Embedded Controller provides flexible scalability with a front panel-mounted ExpressCard 34 expansion slot. Users can extend system functionality with standard ExpressCard modules, or install an ExpressCard device-under-test (DUT). In addition, the z3975 provides ample interface flexibility, including dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB 2.0 ports for peripheral devices, and a Micro-D GPIB connector for GPIB instrument connection.
