NI Announces Two Low-Cost PXI Embedded Controllers for Test, Measurement and Control Applications


New Controllers Deliver Optimal Value and Up to 40 Percent Increased Performance

NEWS RELEASE – April 2008 – National Instruments today announced two new low-cost embedded controllers – the PXI-8104 and PXI-8183 – that deliver exceptional performance for value-based test, measurement, and control applications. With these new controllers, engineers and scientists can apply PXI in a variety of new applications across many industries including consumer electronics, automotive, semiconductor, telecommunications, and aerospace and defense.

The NI PXI-8104 is an Intel Celeron M 440 processor-based embedded controller for use in PXI and CompactPCI systems. With its 1.86 GHz processor and dual-channel 533 MHz DDR2 memory, the PXI-8104 controller offers 41 percent performance improvement compared to its predecessor, the NI PXI-8195 controller. Engineers can use the new controller to create a PC-based platform that offers an optimal balance of performance and value.

The NI PXI-8183, the company’s lowest-cost Windows-based PXI embedded controller at $1,500 USD, is ideal for high-volume OEM and industrial control applications. The two-slot embedded controller features an 850 MHz Intel Celeron processor and provides a highly cost-effective and compact platform when combined with a PXI-compatible chassis, such as the NI PXI-1036.

The PXI-8104 and PXI-8183 controllers are also available in versions that support NI LabVIEW Real-Time and LabWindows™/CVI Real-Time software to deliver a flexible, rugged platform for deterministic and real-time measurement and control. Using PXI-based real-time systems, engineers can leverage powerful processors, high-level software development tools and off-the-shelf PXI I/O modules to quickly create and deploy systems in a variety of applications such as hardware-in-the-loop test, rapid control prototyping and industrial measurement and control.
