On-board hardware is subject to some of the harshest conditions; it is very important that the correct equipment is selected for the system to have any chance of surviving the punishing shock and vibration from these types of applications. As PXI is based on the cPCI mechanical standard, it makes it an ideal choice for any mobile test and inspection application where reliability is of the utmost importance.
In typical mobile applications the capturing of many channels sampling at very high speeds is a critical requirement. By using PXI multiple data acquisition cards that can be synchronised to take measurements at the same time, and the speed available on the 32-Bit bus allowing for fast data transfer to the CPU for processing and then onwards to the hard drive for storage.
