The PXI/PXIe Insert was designed to be mounted in a standard VXI chassis. The unit functions as a VXI-to-PXI converter that allows the user to replace obsolete VXI instruments with PXI or PXIe instruments potentially in a Form Fit Function replacement solution. This is a simple way to incorporate PXI/PXIe instruments into any VXI chassis. Also available for MMS systems.
These products do not require any micro-code overhead or complex development.
The PXI/PXIe insert is a target product for the Mil-Aero and DoD customers sustaining legacy VXI systems requiring replacement of obsolete instruments or requiring modernization using PXI/PXIe instruments.
Additionally, ATTI may be capable of designing any required replacement native VXI instrument.
Use the PXIe insert to bridge the older VXI bus to new PXIe bus architecture. This allows modern PXIe instruments to be inserted in an older VXI chassis instead of complete replacement of even the working VXI instruments.
PXIe insert technology installed into a VXI chassis is the most direct and potentially most cost-effective means to replace older VXI instruments with new PXIe instruments.
Adoption of the PXI Insert can simplify major modifications to fielded test systems that directly translate to reducing and possibly eliminate some risks. Major modifications to fielded automated test stations present significant risks such as:
ATTI’s VXI to PXIe insert is a PXIe-format chassis inserted directly into slots vacated by obsolete VXI instrumentation.

GPATS PXIe Insertion Kit - The Insertion Kit is a direct and cost-effective means to replace obsolete instruments with new, commercially available PXIe instruments. The GPATS PXIe Insertion Kit is mounted in the VIPER/T or TETS primary VXI chassis (see Note 1). The GPATS PXIe Insertion Kit includes an 8 slot PXIe chassis, replacement PXIe instrumentation, a PXIe Signal Conditioning Card, interface cabling, adapters, and mounting hardware. The kit replaces obsolete VXI instruments: Digital Multimeter (E1412A/4252), Counter Timer (E1420B), Digital Storage Oscilloscope (E1428A/ZT1428A), Function generator (3152), and Arbitrary Waveform Generator (E1445) (see Note 2).
Note 1 - TETS upgrade requires purchase of VXI-PXI-PXIe Opt 01
Note 2 - Variations of this kit replacing other obsolete VXI instruments are available.
