6U High-Density PXI RF Matrices

  • 16x16 Coaxial Matrix in 6U PXI Format
  • 250MHz Bandwidth
  • Choice of Front Panel Mounted Coaxial Connectors
  • Uses High-Reliability Reed Relays
  • VISA, IVI and Kernel Drivers Supplied for Windows Environments
  • Select modules are supported by our eBIRST Switching System Test Tools, these tools provide a quick and simple way of finding relay failures within LXI, PCI and PXI switch systems.

Pickering's 6U high-density matrices are suitable for switching frequencies to beyond 250MHz. The 45- 720A module is available in 50 and 75 Ohm versions with a choice of coaxial connectors. It is intended for the easy construction of high-performance bidirectional matrix switching systems. Automatic Isolation Switches are located on all coaxial connectors, these disconnect the matrix from the external test fixture - this maximizes isolation and RF performance.

Standard 3-Year Warranty

These matrices are supported by a comprehensive range of cable and connector accessories and come with a standard 3-year warranty.
