Live Inventory Check:


The M9018A PXIe Chassis has 18 slots, 16 of which are Hybrid-compatible. It also contains 3 controller expansion slots for embedded PXIe controllers. The backplane switch fabric is configurable to provide a 2-link (2x8) or a 4-link (4x4) connection to the system controller. Module slots have a x4 or x8 link depending on location. Two x1 links provide control of PXI modules via PCIe to PCI bridges. Combine the M9018A with the M9021A PCIe Cable Interface and M9047A PCIe Desktop Adaptor to achieve the highest system bandwidth.

The M9018A chassis provides the ultimate in flexibility, compatibility, and performance. With 16 PXIe Hybrid slots, it allows the system designer to mix and match the number and location of PXIe and PXI-1 hybrid compatible modules essentially at will. It containsan advanced PCIe switch fabric that operates up to Gen 2 speeds and can be configured for optimal performance with most PXIe controller. The switch fabric is also configurable for peer-to-peer communications and any peripheral slot can communicate with any other peripheral slot without utilizing the system slot PCIe links.

The M9018A has an innovative cooling design which allows the chassis to fit into 4U of rack space in most cases. When combined with the latest 1U rack-mounted computer, a powerful system can be built in only 5U of rack space. Additionally, optional “air-inlet” modules can be used to supply more cool air from the front of the chassis.
