VTI Instruments is pleased to announce the release of three new high-density switch modules, the EX1200-3164, -4128 and -6216. They further enhance the signal switching capabilities of VTI’s EX1200 Precision Switch, Measure and Control family of products.
“The addition of these switch modules further expands the flexibility and versatility that engineers demand to meet ever-changing test system requirements,” said Jon Semancik, VTI’s Director of Marketing. “The scalable EX1200 provides cost-effective core platform capabilities without sacrificing performance or signal integrity.”
The EX1200 switch module is a high density switching platform and the only LXI Class A subsystem on the market. Test engineers can use the EX1200 switch modules for applications ranging from half rack 1U to full rack 3U while maintaining signal integrity across multiple switch modules. The EX1200 includes a full-featured 6.5 digit DMM, precision analog and digital I/O modules, and an internal analog expansion bus.
The -3164 provides 16 independent (1 x 4) multiplexers that can be reconfigured under software control to build up to a single 64-channel multiplexer. This configuration offers flexibility when multiplexing various inputs to a common resource. The -4128 is a (4 x 128) crosspoint multiplexer that allows multiple resources to be shared by multiple output channels. The -6216 enables high-density RF switching capable of supporting two 16-channel 1 GHz multiplexers.
The new switch modules allow users to build very flexible switching subsystems that span DC to light. The simplified software infrastructure of the EX1200 allows path-level switching through an IVI switch interface. The robust soft front panel enables direct monitoring and control without the addition of third-party software. New high-density switch modules from TekMark Australia .
