PXIe 18-Slot Chassis with Gen 2 performance, 16 PXIe Hybrid slots, mix of x4 and x8 links to peripheral slots.
The M9018A chassis provides the ultimate in flexibility, compatibility, and performance. With 16 PXIe Hybrid slots, it allows the system designer to mix and match the number and location of PXIe and PXI-1 hybrid compatible modules essentially at will. It contains an advanced PCIe switch fabric that operates up to Gen 2 speeds and can be configured for optimal performance with most PXIe controller. The switch fabric is also configurable for peer-to-peer communications and any peripheral slot can communicate with any other peripheral slot without utilizing the system slot PCIe links. Combine the M9018A with the M9021A PCIe Cable Interface and M9048A PCIe Desktop Adaptor to achieve the highest system bandwidth.
