  • Single 8 to 1 50 600MHz PXI RF Multiplexer

    40-762-001 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    This 4 to 1 multiplexer is part of a range of RF multiplexers available in the following configurations: dual, quad and octal 4 to 1, single, dual and quad 8 to 1, single and dual 16 to 1 and single 32 to 1. All multiplexers have the option of automatic terminations which offer advantages at system level by reducing the presence of standing waves in the system which can cause degradation in isolation and crosstalk. These RF multiplexers exhibit low insertion loss and VSWR through the use of modern RF relay technology at an affordable cost. Each MUX has been carefully designed to ensure excellent and repeatable RF characteristics to frequencies of 600MHz with each path having a nominally equal insertion loss. The injection of noise and unwanted signals into the signal paths has been minimized by careful attention to the mechanical and electrical design. User connections are made via SMB connectors; you can find the associated RF cable & connector accessories data sheet under the downloads tab above.

  • CAN/FlexRay/Differential Bus PXI Fault Insertion Switch - 4 Channel

    40-200-004 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    Each channel can support up to 0.3A and is rated to handle up to 100V between the wire pairs. The wire pairs have controlled transmission line impedance suited to most differential pair signaling systems, including fast CAN Bus interfaces and RS232. Each fault bus is capable of carrying 2A allowing multiple channels to be connected to the same fault condition. Additionally, each fault bus features a changeover relay to allow the user to connect alternative fault conditions to the fault buses.

  • CAN/FlexRay/Differential Bus PXI Fault Insertion Switch - 8 Channel

  • PCI Fault Insertion Switch Range for Differential Serial Interfaces

    50-200/201 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    Pickering Interfaces, a leading supplier of modular signal switching for electronic test and simulation, is expanding its range of PCI Fault Insertion switching with the introduction of two new modules (models 50-200 and 50-201) designed for use with differential serial interfaces. PCI Fault Insertion Switch Cards for Differential Serial InterfacesThe new modules include the Differential PCI Fault Insertion Switch (model 50-200) which is designed for lower data rate serial interfaces such as CAN and FlexRay, and the High Bandwidth Differential PCI Fault Insertion Switch (model 50-201) which is designed for higher data rate serial interfaces such as AFDX and 1000BaseT Ethernet. Each module allows the introduction of fault connections that include data paths open, data paths shorted together, and data paths shorted to externally applied faults such as power supplies and ground. The software driver defaults to a protective mode where conflicting faults are prevented to avoid accidentally shorting unintended paths, such as power to ground. A separate mode allows complete freedom in setting fault patterns.
