National Instruments launched 20 new PXI and PXI Express switches in 2012, offering engineers higher density and higher bandwidth switches to meet a range of automated test requirements. Switches in the PXI platform simplify applications ranging from low-speed precision measurements on a dozen test points to high-frequency characterisation of integrated circuits in large multi-site configurations.
Charles Schroeder, Director of Test Marketing for NI, states: "As a market and technology leader in PXI, NI is committed to building our switch portfolio to provide the best flexibility for the challenging applications addressed by the PXI platform. These 20 new switch modules make it easier than ever before to integrate all your instrumentation and switches in the same platform."
