Pickering Interfaces Expands PXI Large Matrices

June 24, 2013. Pickering Interfaces has expanded its range of 2-A 1-pole matrices with releases that include the highest density solutions available in the PXI large matrix (BRIC) format.

The 40-596, 40-597, and 40-598 are all BRIC 1-pole matrices with 2-A current rating, up to 60-W hot-switch power and 100-VDC/70-VAC voltage rating. These products are available in 2-slot, 4-slot, and 8-slot PXI modules. Configurations are available with 6, 12, and 16 Y axis connections with maximum X axis connections to 464 (up to 3,072 matrix crosspoints).

User connections are provided by industry standard D-type connectors and are supported by the comprehensive range of connection solutions also available from Pickering Interfaces.

The BRIC product range uses high quality electromechanical relays to achieve their 2-A switch rating. The BRIC structure allows the creation of large PXI matrices over multiple slots without the use of expensive external cables. The fully integrated programming interface represents the matrix as a single entity, easing user programming and reducing the likelihood of user errors.

These new products will be showcased at SEMICON West, July 9 to 11 in San Francisco.
