From low density to high power - we have the PXI matrix switch modules you need
PXI matrix switch modules deliver low, medium and high-density switching of multiple channels in a single instance. They are organized in rows and columns to provide maximum flexibility, allowing you to connect any row to any column, making them ideal for routing multiple signals between your device under test and your instruments.


We also offer Large PXI Matrix Modules (BRIC) which includes our 2Amp version with the highest crosspoint density available in the industry.

All of our PXI matrix modules can be programmed with our IVI-compliant software drivers and we also have a general soft front panel application so you can become familiar with the modules quickly and to enable manual control. To simplify the management of complex switch systems, we also offer our signal routing software, Switch Path Manager. To ensure speedy and successful system integration, check out our large range of mating cables and connectors.
