Description :

The Keysight Technologies E1406A Command Module is a C-size, 1-slot VXI message-based commander that provides Slot 0 and Resource Manager function. It can act as a VMEbus system controller and GPIB (IEEE-488)-to-VXIbus interface device for transparently communicating with any manufacturers message-based VXI modules. The E1406A Command Module has FLASH memory for downloadable drivers, so you can program Keysight Technologies register-based devices using the high-level SCPI programming language. It also translates SCPI commands for register-based instruments and therefore, makes these VXI devices as easy to program as message-based instruments.

This command module also includes a MXIbus Resource Manager for VXIbus extensions. This allows you to maintain high-throughput performance in multiple mainframe systems. With its flexible triggering and clock interfacing, you can synchronize the VXI backplane 10 MHz clock to an external TTL signal.
