The Keysight E6237A is a C-size, 2-slot, message-based, real-time controller and can be used in all Keysight C-size mainframes. Embedding the controller in the VXI chassis allows direct computer access of other VXI devices, system memory, and triggers as though they were part of the controller hardware. A separate command module is not needed.
The E6237A accesses the VXIbus with a full 32-bit wide data path (D32) for highest performance. It has one additional EXM slot for inclusion of an additional interface that can be ordered separately. For an alternative data path into and out of your VXI system, LAN connection is standard on this module.
This real-time controller supports the Keysight SICL I/O library and C-SCPI instrument command language.
This product includes a 166 MHz processor, 2.16 GB disk, 3.5" floppy drive, 32 MB RAM, SCSI-2, RS-232, GPIB, ECP parallel port, SVGA I/F with 2 MB VRAM, two PS-2 ports, and one EXM expansion slot.
Option 001 includes LynxOS PosixWorks development software and SICL/C-SCPI development software on CD-ROM and all user documentation. PosixWorks features TotalView, a multi-process debugger, and TimeScan, a performance analyzer, for optimizing your code development efficiency. Option 002 includes run-time licenses for LynxOS and Keysight software.
