ABex - Analog BUS Extension for PXI

The ABex (Analog Bus Extension for PXI) is an exceptional test platform that extends to accelerate productivity, development throughput and time to market. Applicable in various industries and technological fields, this platform covers complex test challenges anywhere on the production line.

Due to its flexible system architecture with an analog bus backplane and terminal modules, the platform allows the integration of technology specific extensions and extremely short system set up times which result in a reduction of total system costs.

ABex System Architecture

The ABex expansion enables fully wireless distribution of analog and digital measurement and power signals throughout the entire system. Signals are routed via defined lines with stable impedances. No cables have to be used to connect the DUT with the switching matrices and the required PXI instruments.The system can be equipped with a dedicated DUT interface, based on high quality Virginia Panel technology. The interface guarantees 20,000 mating cycles.
