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.

Speeding Up Large-Scale EM Simulation of ICs Without Compromising Accuracy

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

With growing on-chip RF content, electromagnetic (EM) simulation of passives is critical — from selecting the right RF design candidates to detecting parasitic coupling. Being on-chip, accurate EM analysis requires a tie in to the process technology with process design kits (PDKs) and foundry-certified EM simulation technology. Anything short of that could compromise the RFIC’s functionality. Learn how to get the highest-in-class accuracy and 10X faster analysis.

Nano Pulse Control Clears Issues in the Automotive and Industrial Markets

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ROHM Semiconductor

In EV and industrial applications, converting from high voltages on the power side to low voltages on the electronics side poses a big challenge. In order to convert big voltage drops efficiently, you need very narrow pulse widths. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Satya Dixit from ROHM about new Nano Pulse Control technology that changes the game in DC to DC conversion.
