O VERV IE W
This personal computer and controller technical note
has been prepared to provide the system designer with a
list of tested computers that are compatible with Agilent
Technologies PXI and AXIe chassis. Both AXIe and PXIe
chassis are compatible with each computer unless otherwise
noted. The testing in this guide covers both the PCIe link and
enumeration of the chassis. Compatibility can be impacted by
many factors including computer BIOS and signal path within
the computer and cable.

Testing configurations
Agilent M9018A
PXIe chassis
• Tested using cabled PCI Express® link with the M9021A PCIe® cable interface and PXIe embedded controllers.
• Testing was performed with only a graphics card in its standard slot and Agilent-recommended PCIe
host cable card installed ¹
• Laptop testing utilized the M9045B ExpressCard and Y1200B PCIe cable
• Desktop/rack-mounted PC testing utilized the M9048A PCIe interface and Y1202A PCIe cable
• Tested with Microsoft Windows 7 (32/64 bits)
Agilent M9502A
AXIe chassis
• Tested using: cabled PCI Express link,
• Testing was performed with only a graphics card in its standard slot and Agilent-recommended PCIe host cable card installed ¹
Agilent M9505A
AXIe chassis
• Laptop testing utilized the M9045B ExpressCard and Y1200B PCIe cable

The modular tangram
www.agilent.com
The four-sided geometric symbol that appears in this document is called a tangram. The goal of this seven-piece puzzle
is to create identifiable shapes—from simple to complex.
As with a tangram, the possibilities may seem infinite as
you begin to create a new test system. With a set of clearly
defined elements—hardware, software—Agilent can help
you create the system you need, from simple to complex.
For more information on Agilent Technologies’ products,
applications or services, please contact your local Agilent office.
