TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Introduces Fastest, Highest-Performance PXIe Controller for Complex, Secure Applications

12 GB/s Data Bandwidth Ideal for Demanding CPU Computational Measurements

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 4, 2014 — Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the M9037A, the fastest, highest-performance PXIe controller available. The controller’s 12 GB/s maximum data bandwidth offers unique capability for complex or multi-chassis systems and secure environments. With best-in-class CPU processing speed and a front-panel removable 240 GB solid-state drive, it provides the performance, reliability and security required for aerospace/defense, RF, semiconductor, wireless communications, general-purpose, electronic functional test, or virtually any PXIe modular test system application.

The M9037A controller’s 12 GB/s data bandwidth from the CPU to the PXIe backplane switch is achieved using the PCIe with a potential of up to 24 PCIe lanes. Based on Intel’s i7-4700EQ extended life processor, the M9037A provides the fastest CPU computational measurements available. It offers a front panel x8 PCIe high-bandwidth connection to external PCIe devices, such as a second PXIe chassis or a RAID storage device, providing a unique alternative to using a valuable PXIe instrument slot.

“Our next-generation controller demonstrates Agilent’s ongoing commitment to develop powerful, new products, adding features to our modular platform,” said Agilent’s Mark Pierpoint, vice president and general manager of the Software and Modular Solutions division. “By incorporating the fastest processor available, we are accelerating our customers’ application capabilities and allowing them to easily connect to multiple chassis, external storage devices, and other modular and LXI instruments. This results in improvements in throughput and cost savings.”

U.S. Pricing and Availability

The Agilent M9037A PXIe controller is available now. The base price is $6,950.
