IEEE-1394 (Firewire) PC Link to VXI, C Size The Agilent E8491B Firewire PC Link to VXI module is a high-speed C-size device providing a direct connection from your PC to a VXI mainframe with Resource Manager and Slot 0 capability. Its logical address is 0, therefore it is always the mainframe’s Resource Manager and is typically installed in mainframe Slot 0. The high speed is accomplished, in part, through the use of small signals (200 mV) that are transmitted differentially over the twisted-pair wire set with controlled-impedance characteristics. The differential signal provides high-noise immunity. The E8491B is well suited for data acquisition applications moving large blocks of data, and it is a cost-effective choice for test applications when used with Agilent’s E84XX mainframe series. For multiple VXI mainframe systems, one E8491B is installed into each mainframe and these are interconnected via the cable in a daisy-chain, tree or star configuration.
