The Model 60-102 from Pickering Interfaces is compliant with the LXI Class C specification and supports the firm's 3U PXI switching modules. Each module is supported as an LXI compliant device, with a driverless soft front panel that provides control of the module functions. The device handles up to seven off 3U modules and is equivalent to an eight-slot PXI chassis. The chassis allows most 3U PXI switch modules to be installed and controlled via a standardized Ethernet interface. It includes a built-in generic IVI driver to control the PXI modules, but it also can be controlled through a kernel driver. Modules supported by the chassis include switches; matrices; multiplexers based on reed relay and electromechanical technology; and a range of RF, microwave, and optical switching functions as well as some instrument functions such as variable resistor cards.
