It has been announced that Pickering Interfaces is showcasing its latest high density PXI and Ethernet LXI Switching and Simulation Solutions and Signal Routing Software at Booth 6373, SEMICON West.

The showcase will include:

Model 65-221 high density modular LXI Ethernet reed relay matrix

Combining Pickering’s latest LXI Chassis with new plug-in matrices, the range comprises four models with up to six plug-ins. Over 1,500 relays can be closed simultaneously for specific conditions for parametric testing.

Model 40-559 BRIC ultra-high density large PXI matrix modules

The products are new generation 1A/20W PXI switching modules with up to 4,096 crosspoints, delivering twice the density of competitive products. In two, four, or eight-slot PXI sizes, a complete functional ATE system can be housed in a single 3U PXI chassis or cost-effective eight or 14 slot PXI chassis.

Model 40-297 PXI precision programmable resistor module

The module is for applications requiring simple, accurate simulation of resistive sensors, this series includes 50 model configurations per platform. Also available in PCI form/factor, each offers the choice of channel count (three to 18), range and setting resolution.


All of Pickering’s PXI switching and simulation modules can be used in any PXI chassis, fitted to PXI hybrid slots in a PXIe chassis and used in LXI modular chassis for control via an Ethernet port, including Pickering’s USB/LXI chassis:

Four slot USB/LXI modular chassis (60-105)

A small, lightweight form/factor for portable and space restrictive applications supporting one to four Pickering 3U PXI modules. Remote control via USB or LXI Ethernet enables the switching function of a test system to be located close to target equipment. Direct control through standard HTML5 interfaces on PCs and tablets provides a practical route into modular test and measurement applications.

Switch path manager signal routing software

Simplifying signal routing through switching systems and speeds up the development of switching system software. It supports Pickering's PXI, LXI, PCI and GPIB switching modules and the interconnection between these products.

Pickering eBIRST Switching System Test Tools for PXI, PCI or LXI products simplify switching system fault finding by quickly testing the system and graphically identifying the faulty relay.
