The NI 9157 and NI 9159 MXI-Express RIO chassis and NI 9148 Ethernet RIO chassis from National Instruments are high-channel-count expansion chassis built on NI reconfigurable I/0 technology. Each expansion chassis contains a Xilinx FPGA that is programmable with the NI LabVIEW FPGA module. The new MXI-Express RIO 14-slot expansion chassis with onboard Virtex-5 FPGAs offer a high-end solution for large applications that require high channel counts, mixed I/O for a variety of measurements and custom signal processing and control algorithms. The MXI-Express link delivers high bandwidth for streaming data to and from multiple chassis from a single controller, offering hundreds of C Series module slots and thousands of channels of analog, digital and communication I/O including strain, acceleration, channel-to-channel isolated voltage input and simultaneous voltage.
