The 40-592 FIBO (Fault Insertion Break-Out) Matrix Module is a large-scale high density switching matrix based on the Pickering BRICâ„¢ format. The fault insertion BRICs are designed for applications requiring the simulation of a variety of faults in complex, high pin count, applications involving sensors and control units. Typical faults that can be simulated are open-circuits, short-circuits to ground or battery, or short-circuits between input/output lines. Typical applications are in automotive and aerospace industries which involve safety or mission critical systems that have to behave predictably when cabling or sensor faults occur.
