Adlink PXIe-3988 Controller

Adlink Offers PXIe-3988 Server Class Controller


  • Adlink announces its first server-class PXIe-3988 controller featuring an Intel Xeon E-2276ME processor.
  • The controller leverages a six-core 2.8 GHz Intel Core processor with 12 MB L3 cache and up to 64 GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 memory.

The PXIe-3988 controller uses multiple computing engines on a single processor. It is therefore capable of executing four independent tasks simultaneously, targeting calculation-intensive test and measurement applications.

This distribution of processing loads across six Xeon cores at a clock speed of 2.8 to 4.5 GHz is intended to reduce processing times for signal and data intensive processing applications, such as radio frequency (RF) testing and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation.

With an automatically configured PCIe switch, the PXIe-3988 controller can support four x4 or two x8 PXI Express links, providing a maximum system throughput of 16 GB/s per PCI Express 3.0 bus.

It features two DisplayPort connectors, two USB 3.0 connections, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB 2.0 ports and a Micro-D GPIB connector for connecting GPIB instruments.
