Once you have defined and architected your test system, you need to solve the challenges of DEPLOYING that system to production.
We provide resources to reduce test integration time and increase test throughput; the added benefit is you can focus on
your product and let Pickering’s tools augment your constrained engineering resources. You can also take advantage of our Partner Program—our partners have unique skills, services, and expertise and can assist in developing
complete solutions to meet your exact needs.
Accelerate software development and test time by...
- Using our signal routing software, Switch Path Manager,
which simplifies development by defining logical names to the endpoints of your switching system that can
be used in your test code. Automatically creating the most efficient connection paths while ensuring no undesirable
connections are made and route-caching improves overall test speed.
- Simulating the product in your test system with our PXI & LXI simulation tools—allowing
you to develop and test your test code while the system is being built.
- Manually controlling our products using our Soft Front Panel—allowing you to create test situations before you
write the code.
- Integrating sequencing and scan lists into your application code
by storing pre-defined sequences of switch states on our LXI platforms and control them via hardware signals
to eliminate software overhead, making it much faster than software paced switch sequencing.
Optimize your deployment
In test system development, the best hardware is only usable if its software control environment is robust and easy-to-use.
If you are a test system developer, you need to look at both the hardware and software aspects of your vendors
- With seamless software driver installation and support
of all popular programming languages. Our flexible drivers use a common interface that over the years has
evolved to add support for our growing range of products, and also for the latest operating systems.
We ensure compatibility between our legacy and new switching products in existing and new applications.
Our expertise extends beyond discrete relays and switching modules, meaning you can...
- Take advantage of our in-house cable manufacturing,
from simple mating connectors to complex cable assemblies and terminal blocks. We have standard cables already
designed for all of our products and every accessory is designed to ensure you have a trouble-free experience
in connecting our products to your test system.
- If you need a custom cable, you can design your own using our Cable Design Tool or
we can design one for you and deliver as little as one to many. A well-planned cable design is essential
to ensuring a high reliability test system.
Design & Sustain your test system with Pickering
Deploying your test system isn't the first or last phase, you first need to design it using a flexible platform and sustain
it to measure the success of the development effort—we can help, learn more here:
Design your test system
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.

Sustain your test system
In order to sustain your test system once in production you need to have quality hardware and tools for diagnosis - maximizing
uptime and lowering the total cost of ownership.
