Like previously available 2, 4 and 8-slot versions, the new 12-slot 40-562B and 40-558 modules feature an internal screened analog bus that maximizes signal integrity. The internal bus also minimizes the cost and complexity of cable assemblies to the device under test (DUT) and instrumentation. Internal isolation relays on the internal bus can reduce stub length issues, which provides improved signal quality. Depending on the configuration, the BRIC12 40-558 models can support 1-pole matrix sizes up to 1512×6, 1152×8, 756×12 and 576×16 and the 40-562B models can support 1- and 2-pole matrix sizes up to 792×4, 396×8, 198×16 or 90×32. All models are constructed using the world’s smallest and highest reliability ruthenium reed relays from Pickering Electronics, offering over 109 operations to give maximum switching confidence with long life and very stable contact resistance.
