Dear List Members, My Boss has asked me to look into new Agilent PXI Chassis and compares it with NI Chassis. The Agilent Salesman provides a list of "superior" performance items, such as: - All slots are hybrid (not like NI that some of them are hybrid) - two 4GB paths (effectively 8GB) for data transfer (as opposed to 2.5 GB for NI Chassis) - Existing of Timing card? and Trigger line? that is more superior than NI? - Better cooling methodology - "Free" Agilent Test Exec Software module I have not had a chance to test this Chassis yet and would like to ask independent opinion of the esteemed list members about their positive of negative experiences related to this new product from Agilent. My main concern is lack of software (driver) compatibility with MAX and Labview, although the Agilent Sales man is assuring me that there is no such a problem! (Agilent is about 20-25 percent more expensive than NI) Considering that Agilent does not have any FPGA, Image Acq, Motion Control, etc PXI Modules, it is a bit hard for me to accpet this claim. They provide a few DAQ and Switch PXI modules . So, bottom line, if you are using Agilent PXI chassis, could you please share your impartial experience with me? Either positive or negative, please. I really appreciate your help. Kindest Regards Dr. Hamid Yazdi
