Introduction
The PXI-3920 and PXI-3910 are ADLINK’s next generation 3U
PXI system controllers designed to be the core of hybrid PXIbased testing systems. The PXI-3920 incorporates an Intel
Pentium M 760 2.0 GHz processor and 915GME chipset to
provide superior computing performance; while the PXI-3910
incorporates an Intel Celeron M 373 1.0 GHz processor and
915GME chipset to provide a cost-effective solution.
The hybrid PXI-based testing system is usually composed of a
PXI platform and diversified stand-alone instruments for elaborate testing tasks. PXI-3920 and PXI-3910 provide ample interfaces, including GPIB, USB, and COM ports for connecting and
controlling instruments. Further, PXI-3920 and PXI-3910 are
equipped with dual Giga-bit Ethernet ports so that users can
use one for LAN connectivity and the other for controlling nextgeneration LXI instruments.
The PXI-3920 and PXI-3910 are specifically designed to
deliver excellent durability and reliability. The cable-free
mechanical construction of PXI-3920 and PXI-3910 are
extremely durable. All CPU and memory chips are soldered on
the PCB to increase resistance to shock and vibration. And an
alumni-copper composite heat sink helps to disperse heat uniformly to maintain a stable operating temperature.
Combining a variety of instrument control interfaces and reliable mechanical and electronic design, the ADLINK PXI-3920
and PXI-3910 are excellent choices for hybrid PXI-based testing systems.

provides four trigger routing modes from/to the PXI trigger connector to synchronize PXI modules, including:
X
From a selected trigger bus line to PXI trigger connector
X
From the PXI trigger connector to a selected trigger bus line
X
From software trigger to a selected trigger bus line
X
From software trigger to PXI trigger connector
All trigger modes are programmable by the driver provided with
PXI-3920/3910. Please refer to Appendix A: Trigger I/O Function
Reference for further information.

HDD LED
Yellow
Description
Indicates system power status. If the LED is on, the system
boots up normally and the main power supply is good.
Indicates operating state of the HDD. When the SATA hard
drive or CF card is active, the LED indicator flashes.
Indicates status of the watchdog timer. When watchdog timer
Watchdog
Red
expires, the LED is on. Please refer to Appendix B for
watchdog timer programming information.
Indicates system status. If the system status is good, the
LED is on (off during system booting up). If the LED keeps
blinking, the system is malfunctioning.

PXI system. Additional hardware installations are also discussed.
3.1 Installation Environment
Whenever unpacking and preparing to install any equipment
described in this manual, please refer to the Important Safety
Instructions chapter of this manual.
Only install equipment in well lit areas on flat, sturdy surfaces with
access to basic tools such as flat and cross head screwdrivers,
preferably with magnetic heads as screws and standoffs are small
and easily misplaced.
Recommended Installation Tools

Anti-static mat
ADLINK PXI-3920/3910 System Controllers are electro-static sensitive equipment that can be easily damaged by static electricity.
The equipment must be handled on a grounded anti-static mat.
The operator must wear an anti-static wristband, grounded at the
same point as the anti-static mat.
Inspect the carton and packaging for damage. Shipping and handling could cause damage to the equipment inside. Make sure that

3.6 BIOS Configuration
The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) is a program that provides
a basic level of communication between the processor and peripherals. In addition, the BIOS also contain code for various
advanced features applied to the PXI-3920/3910 controller. The
BIOS setup program includes menus for configuring settings and
enabling PXI-3920/3910 controller features. Most users do not
need to use the BIOS setup program, as the PXI-3920/3910 controller ships with default settings that work well for most configurations.
CAUTION:
Changing BIOS settings may lead to incorrect
controller behavior and possibly an unbootable
controller. If this happens, follow the instructions in
section 2.6.1 to clear CMOS and then restore the
default settings. In general, do not change a BIOS
setting unless you are absolutely certain of what it
does.
3.7 Operating System Installation
For more detailed information about the operating system, refer to
the documentation provided by the operating system vendor. The
preferred/supported operating systems for PXI-3920/3910 are:
X
Windows 2000
X
Windows XP
X
Windows Vista

For other OS support, please contact ADLINK
Most operating systems require initial installation on a hard drive,
floppy drive, or a CD-ROM drive. The PXI-3920/3910 controller
supports USB CD-ROM drive, USB flash disk, USB external hard
drive, or a USB floppy drive as the first boot device. Please refer to
section 3.8 for information about setting the boot devices. These
devices should be configured, installed, and tested with the supplied drivers before attempting to load the new operating system.

PXI-3920/3910
User’s Manual
NOTE:
Read the release notes and installation documentation
provided by the operating system vendor. Be sure to
read all the README files or documents provided on the
distribution disks, as these typically note documentation
discrepancies or compatibility problems.
Select the appropriate boot device order in the SETUP/BIOS boot
menu depending on the OS installation media used. For example,
if the OS is distributed with a bootable installation CD, select USB
CD-ROM as the first boot device and reboot the system with the
installation CD installed in the USB CD-ROM drive.
Proceed with the OS installation as directed and be sure to select
appropriate device types if prompted. Refer to the appropriate
hardware manuals for specific device types and compatibility
modes of ADLINK PXI products.
When installation is complete, reboot the system and set the boot
device order in the SETUP boot menu appropriately.

3.9 Using PXI-3920/3910 with PXI-2558T-B Chassis
This section describes the usage of PXI-3920/3910 controllers in
PXI-2558T-B Chassis. This chassis is unique in that it supports a
built-in LCD display and warrants special BIOS configurations to
properly operate the system controller.
The PXI-3920/3910 controller supports a rear I/O option. The rear
I/O option is designed to operate with a matching rear transition
module which provides internal chassis I/O, including video signals, USB signals, etc. The ADLINK PXI-2558T-B is a 3U 8-slot
PXI chassis with built-in 8.4" LCD touch panel. It contains a matching rear transition module for PXI-3920/3910 to support internal
signal transmission.
While installing PXI-3920/3910 in a PXIS-2558T-B chassis, please
make sure you configure the correct BIOS settings to turn on the
LCD touch panel using the following steps:
X
Press DEL while booting to enter the BIOS setup screen.
X
Select the "Advanced Chipset Features" option.
X
Set the "Boot Display" option to "CRT + LVDS".
X
Set the "Panel Resolution" to "800 x 600".
X
Save your settings and exit the BIOS.
NOTE:
38
Currently PXIS-2558T-B is the only PXI chassis with a
built-in LCD touch panel which supports PXI-3920/3910
controllers. Please DO NOT install PXI-3920/3910 controllers in other chassis with built-in LCD panel, such as
PXIS-2556T, PXIS-2650T, PXIS-2680P, or PXIS-2690P.

Appendix A: PXI Trigger I/O Function Reference
This appendix describes the usage of the PXI trigger I/O function
library for PXI-3920/3910 controllers. Users can use the function
library to program the routing of the trigger signal between the trigger I/O SMB connector on the faceplate and the PXI trigger bus on
the backplane.
A.1 Data Types
We define several data types for PXI trigger I/O functions. The
defined data types can be found in pxitrigio.h in the directory
X:\ADLINK\PXI Trigger IO\Include\ after running the
setup.exe file (where X is the drive you install the trigger I/O
driver). These data types are used by the PXI trigger I/O function
Library. It is recommended that you use these data types in your
application programs. The following table lists the data type
names, their ranges, and the corresponding data types in C/C++,
