June 24, 2013 // By Julien Happich
The PXI-3980 is Adlink's first quad-core PXI embedded controller featuring the high-performance Intel Core i7-2715QE 2.1 GHz processor, with up to 16 GB of 1333 MHz DDR3 memory, for seamless execution in multitasking environments and reduced test times.

The PXI-3980 features dual BIOS backup, conserving maintenance costs, multiple interfaces for connecting and controlling a wide variety of standalone instruments, user-friendly access design for easy maintenance, and support for hybrid PXI-based testing system control.

The PXI-3980's innovative structure delivers high availability in reliable testing systems. In the event of a main BIOS crash, the secondary BIOS can boot the system and recover the main BIOS, reducing maintenance costs and efforts. Easy maintenance makes battery, storage device, and SODIMM modules swap-out easier than ever. In addition, solid metal case elements protect electrical components and enhance electromagnetic compatibility.

Multiple interface choices are available for connecting and controlling a wide variety of standalone instruments, including two display ports supports for VGA + DVI, dual GbE ports, GBIP, and trigger I/O for advanced PXI trigger functions. The PXI-3980 also includes four USB 2.0 ports and dual hi-speed USB 3.0 ports for connection to storage, easily accessing data from system controllers with limited built-in data storage size, and securing data with no storage damage issues.
