What's New

PXI Embedded Controller Based on Intel Xeon

CPU performance almost single handedly determines the measurement speed of instruments. PXI’s modular nature makes it easy to upgrade your test and measurement system CPU. NI has partnered with Intel to deliver the latest technology to PXI with the NI PXIe-8880 Intel Xeon 8-core embedded controller. Pair the controller with LabWindows™/CVI to easily take advantage of the many cores with native multithreading.
