Industry-standard switching & simulation systems from Pickering Interfaces on show at Space-Comm Expo

Visit stand D32 at Space-Comm Expo in Farnborough, UK from March 6-7, 2024

Pickering Interfaces will showcase its range of industry-standard modular signal switching & simulation products for electronic test & verification – including fault insertion and sensor simulation modules for Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation, as well as RF & microwave switching up to 110 GHz – on stand D32 at Space-Comm Expo 2024, taking place from March 6 to 7, at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre in Farnborough, UK.

A growing space powerhouse with an industry turnover of £17.5 billion in 2022, the UK contributes 6.5% to the global space market. The UK’s largest space industry event, Space-Comm Expo gathers space, aerospace & defence, and downstream & upstream industries for two days of high-level networking, exhibition, education and business, focused on the commercial future of space. Supported by key industry associations, Space-Comm Expo showcases developments in technology and the end-to-end supply chain for products, services and applications servicing commercial enterprises, Government and defence organisations.

“At Pickering, we know that space industry electronics engineers have unique testing needs driven by requirements around long operating life, high reliability and hostile environmental conditions,” said Steve Edwards, Product Manager at Pickering. “Our modular products are based on familiar open industry standards that ensure long-term availability, shorten development time and ultimately speed time-to-market. With expert-level knowledge in architecting switching and simulation systems, we help our customers achieve their test objectives efficiently and deliver products with intuitive tools to enhance development teams’ design efforts and productivity. The result is scalable COTS test systems that can be optimised to meet their needs today and in the future.”

Pickering will showcase the following switching & simulation products, solutions and demos on stand D32 at Space-Comm Expo 2024:

  • PXI/PXIe programmable precision resistor, RTD, thermocouple and LVDT/resolver modules for environmental sensor simulation
  • Fault insertion modules that can be used to switch signals between simulations and real-life devices
  • A 21-slot fully hybrid PXIe chassis and single-slot PXIe embedded controller
  • The first modules in a new MEMS-based RF PXI & PXIe multiplexer family
  • A configurable PXI microwave switch platform that allows RF test engineers to combine a wide range of high-performance relay types, while minimising chassis slot usage
  • Turnkey LXI microwave switch & signal routing subsystems – including a custom 12×12 LXI microwave switching matrix demo

Pickering Interfaces stands behind its manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support. For pricing and availability information, visit:
