Modular Instrumentation & Test Solutions
PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation (PXI) is one of several modular electronic instrumentation platforms in current use. These platforms are used as a basis for building electronic test equipment, automation systems, and modular laboratory instruments. PXI is based on industry-standard computer buses and permits flexibility in building equipment. Often modules are fitted with custom software to manage the system.
Sundance, a veteran since 1989 in Modular COTS solutions, has thrown our experience, energy and know-how into a range of PXI and particular PXI Express (PXIe) add-on cards with focus on High-Speed Data Acquisition, Image Processing and Communications solutions. The innovative architecture is built around the Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA device for high-performance computing and signal processing with the added benefit of PowerPC 440 processor core for the "House-Keeping".
The entire range of cards can be used as "Stand-Alone", but Sundance offers support for Linux and Windows 7 should a Host Controller be required.
