1U high 60-106 chassis accepts over 1000 PXI modules;

remote control possible via USB 3.0 or LXI Ethernet

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."
