Geotest Showcases World's First 3U and 6U Combination PXI Chassis
AUTOTESTCON 2002, Huntsville, AL - Geotest-Marvin Test Systems, Inc., a global supplier of electronic test equipment for aerospace, semiconductors, telecom, medical, industrial and military applications, unveils the world's first Combination PXI chassis offering both 3U and 6U slots, the GX7100.
The GX7100 is a rugged, high-performance 14-slot chassis that accommodates a system controller and 13 PXI or cPCI instruments. Slot 1 is dedicated to the system controller (embedded or external, using a PXI bus expander); slot 2 can be used by a PXI Star Trigger Controller or by any PXI or cPCI instrument; slots 3-14 support the PXI Star Trigger, and can accommodate any PXI or cPCI instrument. For maximum flexibility, slots 1 through 7 accommodate 3U or 6U modules and slots 8 through 14 accommodate 3U modules only.
With a rugged design, front-loading of instrumentation, built-in peripherals, and interfacing options, the GX7100 can tackle any automatic test equipment (ATE), data acquisition, and process control applications. The GX7100 takes up only 4U of rack space, reducing the overall size of the chassis while still providing the necessary density and flexibility.
"This revolutionary chassis gives our customers the flexibility to utilize 13 3U or 6U instruments in the minimum possible rack space," said Loofie Gutterman, Geotest president. "Until now, customers had to settle for the 3U form factor or go with the larger 6U chassis. The GX7100 delivers the best of both worlds."
Availability. Product shipment for the GX7100 is scheduled for January 2003
