These 1Amp/20W switching modules offer up to 4,096 crosspoints, are available in 2, 4, or 8-slot PXI sizes and are designed for high-performance matrix requirements.
Constructed with Pickering Electronics’ new 4mm x 4mm Reed Relays, which have the highest packing density currently available, these BRIC PXI matrices now have twice the density of any competing large matrix module for 1Amp switching in PXI.
Because of 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. Dual analog bussing for the narrower matrix options enables completely separate matrices within a single module for parallel testing.
