Pickering Interfaces to showcase PXI, LXI & PCI switching and simulation at Productronica-India September 21-23, 2016


Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of signal switching and simulation solutions used in electronic test and verification, will showcase their broad catalog of PXI & PCI switching and simulation and Ethernet LXI switching solutions at productronica in Bangalore, India, September 21-23 in booth 3211. These products include Pickering’s LXI Matrix Modules, High-Density PXI Relays Modules, PXI RF Multiplexers, PCI High-Density Resistors, and LXI Chassis. A sampling of products that Pickering will display at electronica are highlighted below:

LXI Simulation Tool – (this tool will be released the week prior to productronica) This simple and highly portable tool provides users with a simple and highly portable platform for application development. Supported products include Pickering Interfaces’ PXI & LXI switching modules as well as partial support of their PXI simulation and instrumentation products. This tool allows programmers to develop and debug test code for Pickering’s LXI switching devices prior to receiving the devices or before installing the LXI switching in a test system.

High-Density 2 Amp PXI Relay Module (model 40-100) – Configured with 83 SPDT relays, this relay module is suitable for applications requiring medium power switching with very high density. It features a 2 Amp current capacity and voltages to 200VDC/140VAC. Typical uses are found in automotive, aerospace, military and power cell testing applications.

PXI Microwave Multiplexer (model 40-784A) – These MUXs have a characteristic impedance of 50Ω and are capable of switching signals up to 40GHz. Available in single, dual or triple, 6 to 1 or 4 to 1 formats, they are suitable for constructing complex microwave switching networks and provide a range of switching configurations to suit most applications.

PCI High-Density Resistor Card (model 50-295) – This is a Programmable Resistor card with up to 18-channels of 8-bit resolution resistor chains in a single PCI slot. The flexible architecture allows the card to also be supplied as 12, 16 or 24-bit resolution versions for applications requiring finer resolution, greater resistance range or higher channel count. The card is ideal for simulating the sensors for control and management systems under test, allowing the user to verify system response in design verification or manufacturing test applications.

LXI Modular Chassis – these chassis’ provide an easy way of supporting Pickering’s 3U PXI modules in an Ethernet-based LXI control environment. All of their PXI switching products are supported along with simulators such as resistor modules and battery emulators.

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.
