    Figure 1. PXIe-8880 Block Diagram
    The PXIe-8880 consists of the following logic blocks on the CPU module and the I/O (daughter card) module.
    • The SO-DIMM block consists of three 72-bit DDR4 SDRAM sockets that can hold up to 8 GB each, for a total of 24 GB.
    • The SMB to PXI Express Trigger provides a routable connection of the PXI Express triggers to/from the SMB on the front panel.
    • The AMD Radeon E6460 Embedded GPU drives the graphics with DisplayPort 1.2 output display.
    • The Watchdog Timer block consists of a watchdog timer that can reset the controller or generate a trigger.
    • The Intel C610 Series chipset connects to the SPI, USB, Serial ATA, PCI Express, and LPC buses.
    • The USB Connectors connect the Intel C610 Series chipset to the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface and USB 3.0 interfaces.
    • The Serial ATA Solid-State Drive is a 240 GB or larger notebook solid-state drive. The Serial ATA interface enables transfer rates up to 600 MB/s. The solid-state drive also supports Native Command Queuing.
    • The PXI Express Connector connects the PXIe-8880 to the PXI Express/CompactPCI Express backplane.

    • Both the I210 and I217 Gigabit Enet ports connect to either 10 Mbit, 100 Mbit, or 1,000 Mbit Ethernet interfaces.
    • The GPIB block contains the GPIB interface.
