Small Format Embedded Switching Cards - SIMRC

SIM Reed Relay Cards

  • Low cost embedded switching
  • Uncommitted relay, multiplexer and matrix configurations
  • With I2C and RS-232 interfaces
  • Simple ASCII instruction set
  • Use high quality Pickering Reed Relays
  • For building high density switching networks
  • Standard 72 pin SIM connector
  • Special models available

Our small format embedded switching cards or SIM relay cards (SIMRC) offer a choice of switching configurations using low cost industry standard SIM connectors. They are ideal for placing switching systems in fixtures close to the unit under test.

These small format embedded switching cards free the designer from the detail of routing complex switching circuits, you may select from a wide range of cards using the built in RS-232 and I2C interfaces. SIM relay cards are intended to be mounted on to a simple motherboard and may be used to construct very high density switching networks and also allow for very simple in-field maintenance.
