September 21, 2017– Pickering Interfaces, a provider of modular signal switching and simulation for electronic test and verification introduced their new BRIC Large PXI Matrix Range at IEEE AUTOTESTCON in Schaumburg, IL, September 12-14, 2017.
The range of Large PXI Matrix Modules (model 40-559) are 1Amp/20W switching modules, with up to 4,096 crosspoints. The matrices are available in 2, 4, or 8-slot PXI sizes and are designed for high-performance matrix requirements.
With their switching density, these PXI matrices allow a complete Functional ATE system to be housed in a single 3U PXI chassis and allow the use of 8 or 14-slot PXI chassis’.
The matrices are designed with built-in screened analog busing to minimize the complexity of cable assemblies to the device under test as well as to instrumentation.
The range includes Pickering’s Built-in Relay Self-Test (BIRST) and is also supported by their eBIRST Switching System Test Tools. These tools provide a way of finding relay failures within the modules.
The 40-559 matrices can be used in many industries; however typical applications include automotive ECU and semiconductor package testing. Dual analog bussing for the narrower matrix options, enable completely separate matrices within a single module for parallel testing.
