Click image to enlarge
<

Overview

The 40-573-102-116x8 BRIC is part of a range of high density matrix modules able to switch up to 2 A at 240 VDC/250 VAC. They are available in 2, 4 or 8-slot sizes to suit most high performance matrix requirements, constructed using quality electromechanical relays for high switching confidence.

Typical applications include signal routing for Functional ATE systems. With this high level of switching density, these PXI matrix modules allow a complete ATE system to be housed in a single 3U PXI chassis. Our BRIC modules allow the use of much lower cost 8 or 14-slot PXI chassis:

  • BRIC2 is a 2-slot PXI Module; can hold one or two matrix daughter cards, 464 crosspoints (up to 58x8 2-pole).
  • BRIC4 is a 4-slot PXI Module; can hold up to four matrix daughter cards, 928 crosspoints (up to 116x8 2-pole).
  • BRIC8 is an 8-slot PXI Module; can hold up to eight matrix daughter cards, 1856 crosspoints (up to 232x8 2-pole).

These modules are supported by our Diagnostic Test Tools:
