These modules are 2 Amp high-density large PXI matrix modules with the ability to switch up to 2 Amps at 150VDC/100VAC. These 2A switch matrix modules are available in 2, 4 or 8-slot PXI sizes for most high-performance PXI matrix requirements. Constructed using quality electro-mechanical 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 Functional 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:
