Highest-Density PXI Switch Module
Automated test engineers now can create ultrahigh-density switch systems in a single PXI chassis by using the high density PXI switch module combined with NI Switch Executive switch management software. The NI PXI-2532 ultrahigh-density module offers 512 crosspoints – the largest matrix density available for a single 3U PXI slot. With the new module, engineers can create an up to 4×2176 1-wire matrix in a single PXI chassis. When used with the NI PXI-6653 multichassis synchronization module, it is possible to create hundreds of thousands of synchronized matrix crosspoints with the new module. Engineers can increase test throughput with the switch’s scan rate of 2,000 crosspoints per second. The PXI-2532 switch uses a patent-pending ceramic reed relay from MEDER electronic, Inc. The module offers more efficient ATE by combining the size and speed of MEDER’s CRR relay with the timing, triggering and relay count tracking of the NI hardware framework.
