Switching signal routing software accelerates auto-detection
Modular signal switching and simulation supplier, Pickering, has launched an updated version of its signal routing software, Switch Path Manager Version 6.1.2. This version adds auto-detection and route caching features that improve speed and performance, says Pickering.
The Switch Path Manager (SPM) software simplifies signal routing through switching systems and speeds up the development of switching system software.
It supports Pickering’s switching modules and the interconnection between them. Once a switching system model has been created, signal routing can be achieved simply by defining the endpoints that are required to be connected. The latest software also has a short-circuit detection feature.
The latest version, 6.1.2 introduces the Auto-Detect Configurator which pre-communicates with the hardware before it gets added into the configuration, connector information, handling addressing, verification of the hardware’s existence in SPM, naming and identification. This minimises initial SPM switching configuration, explains Pickering. Another feature is Route Caching to improve routing performance. If there is a sequence of repeated connections, this Route Caching feature avoids double calculations and uses the stored route data, thus speeding up the switching.
Pickering Interfaces designs and manufactures modular signal switching and simulation for use in electronic test and verification. It offers the largest range of switching and simulation products in the industry for PXI, LXI, and PCI applications. It also provides cable and connectors, diagnostic test tools, along with application software and software drivers created by Pickering’s in-house software team.
Pickering’s products are specified in test systems installed throughout the world. Pickering Interfaces operates globally with direct operations in the US, UK, Germany, Sweden, France, Czech Republic and China, and has additional representation in countries throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Its products are currently used in automotive, aerospace and defence, energy, industrial, communications, medical and semiconductor markets.
