IRVINE, Calif. – Marvin Test Solutions Inc. in Irvine, Calif., is introducing three PXI Express chassis for use as modular, scalable test and measurement systems for avionics and other aerospace and defense electronics.

The chassis offer a combination of PXI Express, hybrid slots, and PXI-1 to enable users to configure resources for general-purpose and high-bandwidth test applications.

All three support integral smart functions including system power supply, slot temperature, and fan speed control and monitoring, as well as PXI trigger mapping.

"The flexibility and open architecture of PXI and PXI Express make it possible to configure the right system for today's requirements, and to upgrade and add resources when new requirements emerge," says Marvin Test CEO Steve Sargeant.

The GX7205 and GX7215 are high-power chassis that feature a 4x4 PXI Express lane architecture with 21 slots, accommodating as many as 20 instruments plus a single-slot controller.

The GX7200 series chassis support external and embedded controller configurations. The GX7205 and GX715 feature a 1400-Watt system power supply for high-power and high-performance applications and the cooling necessary to dissipate additional heat.
