The National Instruments VXI-1394 links any PCI-based computer directly to the VXIbus using the IEEE 1394 or "FireWire" high-speed serial bus thus giving your external computer the capability of an embedded computer. This provides an attractive cost/performance solution to a general-purpose PC compared to embedding VXI controllers.

Each VXI-1394 kit includes one PCI-1394 plug-in board; one VXI-1394 Slot 0 module; a flexible 1394 cable; and NI-VXI/NI-VISA VXIbus interface software. This interface combines the IEEE 1394 technology with the MITE and MANTIS custom ASICs. A speed of 400 Mb/s across the IEEE 1394 link is achieved with this kit.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.
