HIGHLIGHTS

The Keysight M9049A PCIe host adaptor for computers with PCIe expansion slots provides a high-performance link from an external computer to an AXIe or PXIe chassis. The M9049A PCIe host adapter has a flexible configuration capability — each card has two Gen 3 x8 PCIe cable links that achieve speeds up to 8 GB/s on each port. 

Combining these two ports into a single x16 cable link has a speed of up to 16 GB/s. You can now build a data-intensive system using a high-performance desktop or rack-mounted computers.

The M9049A PCIe host adaptor uses a PCIe switch and clock isolation to create a high-quality clock source through the PCIe cable to the PXIe or AXIe chassis. You can place the PCIe link on any computer and get the same high-performance. The M9049A PCIe host adaptor uses two x8 Molex cable connectors with x8 to x8 PCIe cables tested to operate at Gen 3 speeds. The operation is transparent to the software application, and software drivers are not necessary.

Applications

  • connects to an external computer using an AXIe or PXIe chassis

Functionality

  • comes with a dual-port PCIe® adapter
  • enables AXIe chassis and PXIe chassis connected to a desktop or rack-mounted computer via standard x8 PCIe cables
  • provides dual-mode operation with a single x16 connection to a single chassis or dual x8 connections to two chassis (switch-selectable)
  • supports PCIe standard profile format for an x16 computer slot with dual PCIe x8 cable connectors 

Performance characteristics

  • high data bandwidth maximum of 16 GB/s using x16 mode)
