Test and measurement supplier, Adlink Technology has announced the release of the PCIe-to-6U CompactPCI/PXI expansion kit.

The kit includes the PCIe-8560 PCI Express host board, the PXI-8656/6U remote system controller, and an expansion cable. The expansion kit is designed for applications with high density I/O requirements such as telecommunication systems, mass production testing and military/aerospace by providing control of 6U CompactPCI/PXI modules via the high bandwidth, low latency PCI Express interface. The kit supports up to 7 devices in a remote 6U CompactPCI/PXI chassis. The control of the 6U CompactPCI/PXI chassis through the PCIe-8560 PCI Express host board is transparent to software applications and drivers. All CompactPCI and PXI modules installed in the remote chassis will operate as if they are directly installed in the host system. ADLINK's 15-slot 6U PXI/CompactPCI chassis, PXIS-3320 is also available for choices.
