Crosspoint Matrix Switching for Functional Test
Crosspoint matrix switches are one of the most flexible switching choices you can select for your next functional test system—essentially, a crosspoint matrix switch can connect virtually any test resource to virtually any test point on the DUT (Device Under Test). But like any selection you can make, there can be pros and cons in utilizing a crosspoint matrix: a test engineer needs to carefully weigh the specifications of the DUT to be tested in order to make the right switching choice for the test application being considered.
In this short video, we will explain how a matrix works, different ways to configure them, what questions to ask concerning the application and more. We will also compare building a large matrix with multiple switch matrices versus selecting a totally integrated switch matrix.
