The PXI-3980.

Adlink Technology has debuted its first quad core embedded controller, the PXI-3980. The device boasts an Intel Core i7-2715QE 2.1GHz processor that operates at up to 3.0GHz in single-core Turbo Boost mode and packs up to 16GB of 1333MHz DDR3 memory for seamless execution in multi-tasking test and measurement environments. It also features dual BIOS backup and multiple interfaces for connecting and controlling a variety of stand-alone instruments.

In the event of a main BIOS crash, the 3U PXI controller's secondary BIOS can be used to boot the system and recover the main BIOS. Battery, storage device, and SODIMM modules swap out quickly for easy maintenance, while solid-metal case elements protect electrical components and enhance electromagnetic compatibility.

Interface options include two display ports supporting VGA and DVI, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, IEEE 488, trigger I/O for advanced PXI triggering, four USB 2.0 ports, and dual high-speed USB 3.0 ports. In addition, Adlink provides a choice of either a preinstalled 500GB hard-disc drive or an Intel 520 series 120GB solid-state drive.

Datasheet for the PXI-3980 controller can be found here.
