The NI 8260 in-chassis PXI Express/CompactPCI Express high-speed data storage module is part of the PXI streaming system offered by NI. Featuring an onboard PCI Express SATA controller, the module easily fits into a PXI Express chassis and provides up to 1 TB of storage space while occupying only three PXI slots. With the NI 8260, you can choose between hard-disk drives (HDDs) or solid-state drives (SSDs) for increased ruggedness. The HDD option contains four 250 GB 2.5 in. laptop SATA II platter drives. This module can sustain a transfer rate of 200 MB/s when using the HDDs and RAID-0 configuration. The configuration options are JBOD or software RAID-0 setups. RAID-0 provides the highest performance for streaming data to and from disk.
With the robust design of PXI and the NI 8260 high-speed storage module, you have a rugged and reliable solution for field testing or signal recording applications. You can use this module to not only stream high-speed data but also easily move data between multiple test setups or supplement the PXI system controller’s storage capacity.
