PXI Express multiplexer packs 152 channels
Extensive signal shielding preserves signal integrity throughout the signal path by maintaining the signals at the same reference levels as the UUT. The SMX-3276 also has internal capacitive-discharge relays that can be enabled to momentarily short out the measurement path when changing from one input channel to the next. This dissipates any voltage held by the wiring and instrument input capacitance and protects sensitive devices, such as CMOS circuits, from residual voltages caused by previous high-voltage measurements.
As an extension of VTI’s EX1200 series switch family, the SMX series provides seamless integration between the two families, simplifying the transition from a low to medium-size switch system in PXI Express to a large-scale switch system in the EX1200.
