Two New Gen 3 PXI Express (PXIe) Chassis from Pickering Interfaces Ensure Maximum PXI Application Flexibility

All hybrid, high-performance and low-cost for a broad range of applications

December 06, 2020 – Clacton-on-Sea, UK – Pickering Interfaces, the leading supplier of modular signal switching and simulation solutions for use in electronic test and verification, today launched new 8- and 18-slot Gen 3 PXIe chassis designed for high-performance, benchtop or rack-mount applications. Both chassis feature an intelligent chassis management system that monitors the power supply voltage, internal temperature and cooling fan speed.

Pickering’s 42-924 8-slot chassis provides seven hybrid-compatible slots for application flexibility. The 42-925 18-slot chassis provides one PXIe system slot, one PXIe timing slot and 16 hybrid-compatible slots for similar versatility. Any 3U PXI, PXIe, or Compact PCI-compliant module will work in any module slot.

The 4U high chassis also benefit from high-capacity system power supplies rated at 400W (8-slot) and 1200W (18-slot). Efficient fans and a direct convection design ensure maximum PXI module cooling, enabling the chassis to operate over an extended ambient temperature range of 0°C to +50°C. Front-to-back cooling requires no space to be left between rack-mounted devices, enabling greater instrument density. The current condition of the chassis can be monitored remotely via a port on the rear panel.

Comments Product Manager, Lee Huckle “Customers need maximum flexibility to use both PXI and PXIe modules, and these hybrid chassis support the latest generation (Gen 3) PXIe modules from all manufacturers, as well as Pickering products. Price and performance are key considerations, and I believe the new chassis offer real value for money along with a three-year warranty, the best in the business.”

Pickering’s new chassis also include other useful features such as low operating noise, external clocking capability and rack mount handles as standard.

Selecting the Right MOSFET: BLDC Motor Control in Battery Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Nexperia

An increasing number of applications today rely on brushless motors, and that means we need smooth, efficient motor control. Choosing the right MOSFET can have a significant impact on the performance of your design. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Tom Wolf of Nexperia about MOSFET requirements for brushless motor control, and how to chooser the right MOSFET for your design.
