New Six-Slot Modular USB/LXI Chassis from Pickering Interfaces Increases Test Functionality in Space-Restricted Applications

September 13, 2018

CLACTON-ON-SEA, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 13, 2018--Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of modular signal switching and simulation products for electronic test and verification, announces a new six-slot modular USB/LXI chassis that occupies only a small, 1U rack-height form factor, making it suitable for portable and space-restricted rack-mount applications. The 60-106 chassis accepts from one to six Pickering PXI 3U modules; the user can choose from over 1000 module types including programmable resistors, matrices, multiplexers, general purpose relays, RF switches and fault insertion units.

The USB 3.0-compatible chassis features a fully compliant LXI interface with the option of using a Wi-Fi dongle (sold separately), enabling remote control via USB or LXI Ethernet — chassis can be controlled through standard PCs and tablets that support HTML5.

Comments Bob Stasonis, Director of Sales & Marketing at Pickering Interfaces: “The small size provides new functionality for test engineers. Possible system configurations include switching matrices up to 3312 crosspoints (three 40-560 BRIC2 modules occupying three pairs of slots) or up to 108 channels of programmable resistor/sensor emulation (six 40-295 18-channel resistor modules occupying six slots). This allows the system to add the necessary switching and frees up the PXI/PXIe slots for instrumentation.”
