Pickering to show latest switching modules at AMPER 2016 in Brno, Czech Republic
Pickering Interfaces, a provider of signal switching and instrumentation solutions used in electronic test and simulation, will showcase their broad catalog of PXI, Ethernet LXI and PCI switching solutions at Amper, in Hall V, Booth 2.22 on March 15-18. These products include Pickering’s LXI, PXI, Programmable Resistors, Microwave Multiplexer and PCI Ranges. Below is a preview of some of the products they will be showing:
PXI Microwave Multiplexers – these support single, dual, or triple SP4T or SP6T relays and are available in a variety of different frequency options for 50 Ω, from 6GHz to 40GHz. All models occupy just two 3U PXI slots and feature LED’s that indicate which path of the multiplexer is closed.
PXI and PCI Programmable Resistor Solutions – Pickering Interfaces offers the widest range of programmable resistor modules in PXI and PCI format. Many of these models cover applications that require low cost solutions through to those that require high precision and the best stability achievable.
BRIC™ PXI Large Matrix Modules, the use of high-density packaging and integrated backplanes enables a large matrix to be implemented with no user configuration or special matrix expansion kits. These matrices use thru-hole mechanical relays (not surface mount) and can be serviced using standard de-soldering tools simplifying repair and reducing down time. The BRIC’s integrated design ensures high matrix performance with high signal bandwidth and fewer system implementation errors. .
LXI Switching (Ethernet controlled) Systems – LXI systems support large switching systems with simplified control through an Ethernet connection. LXI is the power of Ethernet and the Web applied to Test & Measurement (T&M) instruments, offering you new possibilities in test systems – local, remote, distributed and time-aware.
eBIRST™ Switching System Test Tools – these tools simplify switching system fault-finding by quickly testing the system and identifying the faulty relays. Once identified, the tools then display a graphical representation of the switching system’s PCB assembly, highlighting the relays that need to be replaced.
All the PXI modules can be used in any PXI chassis, can be fitted to PXI hybrid slots in a PXIe chassis and can also be used in Pickering’s LXI Modular chassis for users preferring control via an Ethernet port.
Pickering Interfaces also has a Czech-based manufacturing facility that produces their cables and connectors designed to work with their switching systems.
Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
