Building on the architecture of the GENASYS switching subsystem, MTS has added the GX7017 integrated GENASYS chassis to the GENASYS product line, providing digital, analog, and high-performance switching capability within a single, compact, 6U PXI chassis footprint.
The GX7017 is a 20-slot 6U PXI chassis with an integrated MAC Panel SCOUT mass interconnect receiver that can accommodate up to nine GENASYS switching modules, eight high-performance digital instruments, and additional PXI instrument modules providing the flexibility to address a wide range of analog/digital ATE applications.
Featuring high density signal switching for board and system level functional test with an “any-resource to any-pin” architecture, the GX7017 can accommodate any of the GENASYS switch modules, providing up to 2,304 multiplexed, hybrid I/O pins without cabled connections via a MAC Panel 6U SCOUT receiver. In addition, the GX7017 can support up to 256 performance digital test channels, providing a high performance and compact functional test platform for mixed-signal test applications.
The GX7017 chassis is available as a subsystem or as part of the TS-321, Marvin Test Solutions’ single-bay GENASYS functional test platform.
To further extend the switching capabilities of the GENASYS platform, Marvin Test Solutions has also introduced the GX6864, a 500-MHz, 75-Ω RF multiplexer switch module for high I/O count, video switching / test applications.
