Astronics / EADS / Racal 1260-45 High-Density Switch Matrix

  • Configurable as Eleven Different Matrices
  • 25 MHz Bandwidth (4x16 Configuration)
  • Switches Signals up to 1A or 250 VDC
  • Single-Slot VXIbus Module


The Racal 1260-45 offers the highest-density switching matrices in a single-slot C-size VXI module with the added flexibility of eleven different configurations on one card. The module may also be easily extended externally to build a larger matrix in a single VXI chassis, allowing the 1260-45 to satisfy even the most dense applications.

The 1260-45 utilizes guard relays at the row inputs of each one of the 4x16 matrix blocks. The guard relays are non-latching and revert to the open state when power is lost, therefore disconnecting the signal paths to the UUT upon removal of power from the test station. This is an important consideration in ATE because when power is returned to the test station, the UUT is guaranteed not to receive any unwanted signals. The guard relays can also be bypassed via jumpers for a full latching relay configuration.

Latching relays are useful for communication applications where the signal path must always be maintained. This allows the matrix to retain the last switch position when power is lost.
