Today’s test systems are often developed in silos – specific test systems designed for the specific products or processes needed today – without forethought toward future testing needs. However, shifts in demand require today’s products to scale in production or grow in functionality.
Pickering Interfaces launched four and six channel LXI 50Ω microwave multiplexers in compact 1U and 2U rack-mount form factors. The 60-801/60-802 high-performance microwave switches feature excellent RF characteristics and repeatability to within 0.01 dB.
Pickering offers a variety of PXI programmable resistor modules and PCI programmable resistor cards for use in medical, automotive and aerospace applications. We have developed over 160 PXI modules and 150 PCI cards.
The 2-slot modular chassis (model 60-104) offers a small, lightweight form/factor ideal for portable, benchtop and space restrictive applications. The chassis is designed for desk or rack mounting and features remote control via USB or LXI Ethernet. Remote control over a network enables the switching function of a test system to be located as close as possible to the target equipment. The chassis supports one or two Pickering 3U PXI modules.
Pickering Interfaces has expanded their range of high-density 2 Amp PXI multiplexers. This range of high-density 2 Amp PXI multiplexers (40 - 614 family), available in 20 different configurations, was designed for signal routing in automatic test equipment (ATE) and data acquisition systems. The range uses high-quality electromechanical signal relays allowing each channel to switch current up to 2 Amps and voltage up to 200 VDC / 140 VAC.
Pickering Interfaces will showcase their broad range of PXI and LXI RF & Microwave switching solutions, along with their soon-to-be-released 2-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis and LXI Simulation Tool at EDI CON USA 2016, Booth 822 taking place September 20-22 in Boston, Mass.
