Pickering introduces PXIe USB 2.0 hub module

Pickering Interfaces, a supplier of modular signal switching and simulation for electronic test and verification, has announced the addition of a PXIe version of its USB 2.0 Hub module which offers the same capabilities as its popular PXI USB 2.0 Hub (model 40-738).

This USB 2.0 Hub (model 42-738) is a single-slot 3U PXIe module that combines an 8-port USB 2.0 hub and USB data/power switching to provide a controlled connection between the backplane and USB products. Each port can connect and disconnect power and data paths separately, simulating various connection faults.

The module can be used to connect a USB device under test or USB test equipment to the test system without reliance on the controller’s USB ports, eliminating the need for free-standing powered hubs in a test system. It also provides a simple way of expanding the range of test equipment supported by PXI-based test systems to include USB power meters, USB data acquisition systems and USB scopes.

All manufactured products from Pickering Interfaces come with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support
