Why Pickering? 

We can help you design, deploy & sustain your automated test system

Enhance your engineering team's effectiveness by working with our collaborative, creative and agile culture. Our over 50 years of experience in switching for automated test, along with a continually expanding range of PXI, PCI, LXI and USB switching and simulation products, software and services—can help to streamline the development and deployment of your high-performance electronic test and verification systems.


Defining a test system can be challenging. Your goal as a test architect is to accelerate your test system design process using a flexible platform. Having a vendor with the expertise you need will help you get the job done, on time and on budget.

Once your system is defined and architected, you need to solve the challenges of deploying that system into production. We provide resources to reduce test integration time and increase test throughput.

A strategic test development strategy does not stop at the design and deployment phase. In order to sustain the system once in production, you need to have quality hardware and tools for diagnosis—maximizing uptime and lowering the total cost of ownership.

Products and services to get your job done on-time and budget

Pickering offers PXI, LXI, USB & PCI switching & simulation, cables & connectors & application software for Automated Test

Our core focus is high-density modular switching and simulation systems for PXI, PCI, LXI and USB applications. We offer the industries deepest portfolio (over 1,000 products in PXI alone), but the value doesn’t end there.

Develop a system to your specifications

When our product range doesn’t fit your application, we have the agility and expertise needed to develop a system to your specifications, often with little to no engineering cost. Take a look at our Turnkey Microwave Switching Subsystems here >>

Accelerate your software development and test time

We can also help accelerate software development and test time by offering tools to help with your programming efforts. These include our Switch Path Manager signal routing software that simplifies coding of switching systems. And simulation tools that allow development to begin before your hardware is received.

Do you need subsystem integration?

We offer cable design and manufacturing services to offload this mundane and time-consuming task. Or take advantage of our cable design tool and design your own cable assembly.

Maximize uptime of your test system

We know that maximizing uptime of your test system is important—with our diagnostic test tools, you can identify faulty or damaged components in a matter of minutes. And many of our products include spare relays, so you can self-repair in the field without voiding our 3-year warranty.

Product longevity

Our products have a history of longevity, typically 15–20 years, which is critical to many of our customers. All products manufactured by us come with a standard 3-year warranty and include guaranteed long-term support.

Free first-line technical support 

Our technical staff can address any hardware or software problems you may encounter. We have multiple offices located around the world and provide access to support engineers that have many years’ experience in functional test and are committed to responding in a timely fashion.

No matter what your test platform is, we can provide cost-effective solutions

All module and cabling manufacturing processes are done within our two factories on flexible manufacturing lines allowing us to offer simple customization to meet your needs. The chances are good that we can enhance your engineering team's effectiveness with our collaborative, creative and agile culture.
