40-737 PXI switch

Pickering Interfaces has extended its PXI switching product offering with the introduction of the 40-737 USB switch.

The 40-737 is an eight-channel mux designed specifically for switching USB signals. The new module permits users to connect and disconnect USB devices in test systems and is particularly well-suited for the bulk testing of USB devices. Each path is designed to be compliant to USB cabling standards with controlled impedance data lines. USB-powered devices requiring the highest permitted current are supported through the use of low-impedance power connections.

Each path is capable of supporting USB1.1 or USB2.0 with negligible impact on the cabling distance supported by USB devices due to the wide differential bandwidth.

To simplify cabling support the 40-737 uses a USB Type B connector on the common and USB Type A connector on the eight channels, allowing users to directly connect using industry standard USB leads.
