Pickering Interfaces expands range of PXI RF multiplexers

April 7, 2016

Clacton-on-Sea, UK. Pickering Interfaces, a provider of modular signal switching and instrumentation for electronic test and simulation, is expanding its range of PXI 50-Ω 600-MHz RF multiplexers with 18 different configurations including a PXI two-slot 32:1 configuration.

This new range of PXI RF Multiplexers (Series 40-760) is available in the following configurations: dual, quad, and octal SP4T, single, dual, and quad SP8T, single and dual SP16T, and single SP32T. All of the multiplexers have versions with automatic terminations to manage VSWR effects, which could degrade the performance of a test system.

All versions of this range of PXI RF multiplexers exhibit low insertion loss and VSWR through the use of modern RF relay technology. Each version has been carefully designed to ensure excellent and repeatable RF characteristics to frequencies of 600 MHz with each path having a nominally equal insertion loss.

The injection of noise and unwanted signals into the signal paths of the 40-760 range has been minimized by careful attention to the mechanical and electrical design.

These multiplexers are compatible with any PXI chassis and can be fitted to PXI hybrid slots in a PXIe chassis. They can also be used in Pickering Interfaces LXI modular chassis’ for users preferring control via an Ethernet port.

Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of its manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
