Autotestcon Pickering Interfaces, Booth #1017 Baltimore, Maryland – September 2011
IEEE AUTOTESTCON is the United States' largest conference focused on automatic test equipment for U.S. military systems, and has been held annually since 1965. The conference is held in Baltimore this September, all themes focused precisely on the current issues facing military automated test. Pickering Interfaces has continued in 2011 to regularly release a steady flow of new products in both the LXI and the PXI platforms. And - in addition all Pickering Interfaces LXI products are now fully LXI compliant to the latest 1.4 specification.
There is a demand for high pole count multiplexers in PXI based test systems where the test system will test multiple devices in sequence with minimal operator handling. The ability to move 10, 20 or more signals simultaneously from one device to another improves the efficiency of a test system.

In addition, the market is demanding new matrix configurations, including these that do not fit easily in a single slot 3U module. Matrices can be expanded to make up larger configurations, but the methods used are time consuming for the user to configure, and often have performance implications and add costs.


Amongst other products we highlight:

First models in a new range of 6GHz switch solutions, these compact switch modules offer an alternative to mechanical microwave switches for applications up to 6GHz. Their excellent isolation and crosstalk performance combined with fast operation and long life makes them ideal for both production and development testing.
