SMT Hybrid Packaging 2017 - Germany

Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of modular signal switching and simulation for electronic test and verification, will showcase their broad catalogue of PXI, PCI and Ethernet LXI products and software solutions at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2017 on 16-18 May in Hall 4A, Booth 141 in Nuremberg, Germany. Below are some of the new products that will be highlighted in the booth:

Pickering Interfaces preview for SMT Hybrid Packaging 2017 - Germany2-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis (model 60-104) – This new chassis offers a small lightweight form factor, making it ideal for portable, benchtop and space restrictive applications. It supports one or two of Pickering’s 3U PXI modules. The USB compatible and LXI compliant interfaces enable the chassis to be controlled directly through standard interfaces found on most personal computers—allowing for a very cost effective route into the modular test and measurement market.

Millivolt Thermocouple PXI Simulator Module (model 41-760) – A low-voltage source module ideal for simulating the operation of a thermocouple. This module supports up to 32 channels from a single-slot 3U PXI module, each with an independent output of -100mV to +100mV and a remote sense that allows for the correction of ground voltages on each channel.

LXI Modular Chassis (model 65-200) – A modular chassis with plugins which use a large PCB size that make it particularly suitable for implementing large switching system with minimal interconnection costs compared to smaller modular standards such as PXI. Example plugins will be on show for implementing large matrix products. Users can fit as many or as few plug-in modules (up to six) required and can field upgrade the chassis to extend the switching system when necessary. The 65-200 chassis supports very high relay closure counts to permit high-speed continuity and insulation testing. Pickering Interfaces is able to design other plugin modules for the 65-200 to address a variety of large switching system applications.

Switch Path Manager Signal Routing Software – this new signal routing software simplifies signal routing through switching systems and speeds up the development of switching system software. Switch Path Manager supports Pickering's PXI, LXI, PCI and GPIB switching modules and the interconnection between these products.

Cable Design Tool –This graphics-based online tool lets you define a cable assembly to exactly meet your requirements. The tool allows very detailed design characteristics including - selection of connector types, wire type, pin definitions, pin and cable labeling, cable bundling, length selection, sleeving and comments. Features include a built-in library of standard cable sets or design from scratch, the ability to store designs in the Cloud and develop them over time and you can create your own library and share with colleagues.

Also highlighted in the booth will be their eBIRST Switching System Test Tools. These tools, designed specifically for Pickering’s PXI, PCI, or LXI (Ethernet) products, simplify switching system faultfinding by quickly testing the system and graphically identifying the faulty relays.

Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
