Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of signal switching and simulation solutions used in electronic test and verification, will showcase their broad catalog of PXI, PCI & LXI switching solutions at electronica China on March 14-16 in Shanghai. These products include Pickering's High-Density Matrices, Multiplexers and Programmable Resistors ranges as well as their 2-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis. Below is a preview of some of the products they will be showing:
2-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis (model 60-104) - this chassis offers a small lightweight form factor, making it ideal for portable, benchtop and space restrictive applications. It supports one or two 3U Pickering PXI modules and accepts the majority of Pickering's PXI products. 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.
PXI Microwave Multiplexer (model 40-784A) - these support 4-way or 6-way multiplexers in single, dual or triple formats. They are characterized for 6GHz, 18GHz, 26.5GHz, or 40GHz and have excellent performance throughout their frequency range. All models occupy just two 3U PXI slots.
BRIC™ PXI High-Density Matrices (model 40-562) - available in 2, 4 or 8-slot PXI sizes to suit all high-performance matrix requirements. These matrices are constructed using high-quality reed relays. This level of switching density allows a complete Functional ATE system to be housed in a single 3U PXI chassis.
PCI High-Density Precision Resistor Card (model 50-297) - designed as a simple solution for applications requiring accurate simulation of resistive sensors, this series includes 50 model configurations per platform (this model also available in PXI form/factor). Each version offers users the choice of channel count, range and setting resolution. With resolution from 0.125Ω to 2Ω and channel counts from 3 to 18 and basic accuracy is 0.2% ± resolution.
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.
Pickering will also be showing a range of PXI switching, PXI Precision Resistors and supporting cables and connector solutions as well as their eBIRST™ Switching System Test Tools. The eBIRST tools tools simplify switching system fault-finding by quickly testing the system and identifying the faulty relays. Once identified, the tools then display a graphical representation of the switching system's PCB assembly, highlighting the relays that need to be replaced.
Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
