Pickering Interfaces to Launch New Ultra-High-Density Large PXI Matrix Range at IEEE AUTOTESTCON

A New Generation of 1Amp PXI Matrices with
Twice the Density of Competing Large Matrix Modules

Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of modular signal switching and simulation for electronic test and verification, is pleased to introduce their new BRIC™ Ultra-High-Density Large PXI Matrix Range at IEEE AUTOTESTCON in Schaumburg, IL, September
12-14, 2017.

The new range of Ultra-High-Density Large PXI Matrix Modules (model 40-559) are robust 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.

“These matrices are constructed with Pickering Electronics’, our sister company, new 4mm x 4mm Reed Relays which currently have the highest packing density available,” said Keith Moore, CEO at Pickering Interfaces. “By adding these relays to our BRIC PXI matrices, we now have twice the density of any competing large matrix module for 1Amp switching in PXI.”

With their high level of 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 much lower cost 8 or 14-slot PXI chassis’.

The matrices are designed with built-in high-performance screened analog busing to minimize the cost and 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 quick and simple 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.

Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support. Further information is supplied on their website at www.pickeringtest.com.
