The PXI platform continues its explosive growth with many new product introductions. New products introduced in the last three months include (listed in the order received):
Marvin Test TS-960e-5G mmWave / 5G Production Test System
The TS-960e-5G mmWave test system delivers proven performance up to 50 GHz. The system integrates laboratory grade RF performance directly to the mmWave Device Under Test (DUT) for multi-site production test or device characterization for mmWave devices. In addition, MTS offers a full suite of digital and parametric testing and SPI/I2C interface support to functionally control / monitor the device under test.
Pickering BRIC 0.5Amp PXI Matrix Modules with up to 6,144 Crosspoints
The new 0.5Amp ultra-high-density PXI matrix module family (model 40-558) has a switching density 39% higher than competing devices. The modules allow a complete Functional ATE system to be housed in a single 3U PXI chassis, and the integrated BRIC design saves on valuable chassis slots compared to standard PXI matrix modules.
Available in two, four or eight-slot widths for matrix sizes between 64x16 and 1,008x6. The modules are fitted with high quality, ruthenium-sputtered 4mmx4mm reed relays ‐ manufactured by Pickering's relay division ‐ which feature a very long life with good low-level switching performance and excellent contact resistance stability.
Keysight M9601A PXIe Precision Source/Measure Unit, 1.25 MSa/s, 10 fA, 210 V, 315 mA
The Keysight M9601A is a precision source/measure unit (SMU) ideal for a wide variety of current versus voltage measurement tasks that require both high resolution and accuracy such as the characterization, parametric/reliability tests of semiconductors, active/passive components, and general electronic devices.
- 4-quadrant integrated symmetry sourcing and measuring capability
- Broad coverage of currents from 10 fA to 315 mA and voltages from 500 nV to 210 V
- 20 µs minimum narrow pulse capability
- 30 fArms low current measurement noise at 20 ms aperture time
- High-speed sampling measurement at 1.25 Msamples/s
SignalCore 26.5 GHz RF Downconverter
The SC5317A is a Ku to C band single stage downconverter, whose input RF range is 6 GHz to 26.5 GHz, LO frequency range is 6 GHz to 14 GHz, and output IF range is 5 MHz to 4 GHz. It features an internal synthesized LO, RF preamplifier, and variable gain control, making it a compact standalone downconverter module.
