- High-density Multiplexing/Scanning
- Built-in Configuration Relays Expand the 1x5 Multiplexer Building Blocks
- Extensive Signal Shielding Employed on PCBs for Excellent Signal Fidelity
- Break-Before-Make (BBM) and Make-Before-Break (MBB) Accomplished in Hardware, Considerably Improving Scanning Time
The SMP3005 is designed for scanning of multiple points to a common bus either synchronously with an instrument (i.e., using triggers), or asynchronously with individual relay control. Up to 300 2-wire channels can be accommodated in a double-slot VXIbus card (SMP1200) for maximum density, or mixed and matched with other SMIPII™ cards for flexibility. Applications include cable harness testing, semiconductor and PCB testing, or applications where multiple points need to be switched to a common resource. All relays also have individual relay control, and each path allows for 2A switching.
The SMP3005 consists of 12 individual (1x5) 2-wire multiplexers that can be interconnected under program control (via the bussing relays) to configure larger multiplexers as required. This eliminates external wiring and helps reduce unterminated stubs.
