PXI Products for Hybrid Test Systems in Production Applications
Keithley Instruments, Inc. has introduced a new line of PXI products designed for high-speed automated production testing as part of a hybrid test system using precision instruments. The new KPXI product line consists of simultaneous data acquisition boards, multifunction analog I/O boards, high speed analog output boards, a 130 MS/sec digitizer module, digital I/O modules, PXI chassis, embedded PC controllers, MXI bridges (for remote PC control) and GPIB interface cards. KPXI products are designed for integration with precision instrumentation, such as the company’s Series 2600 System SourceMeter multi-channel I-V test devices, which feature TSP and TSP-Link that allow users to program and execute high-speed, automated test sequences across multiple channels -- independent of a PC operating system and its associated communication delays. The products include software examples and drivers that work with LabView, Microsoft.net, Visual Basic and C programming languages. Module list prices start at low as $325, embedded controller prices at $2,795 and chassis prices at $999.Keithley Instruments, Inc.
