A component of the GENASYS platform, the Marvin Test MV-GX7016 switching subsystem offers a new level of high performance, high density switching for board and system level functional test. Based on the 6U PXI architecture, the MV-GX7016 incorporates a modular switch matrix and multiplexer architecture which supports up to 4608 multiplexed, hybrid I/O pins. Up to 128 external resources can be connected to any of the test system’s receiver I/O pins via a high performance, internal 16 wire matrix bus. For digital test capability, the MV-GX7016’s switching subsystem can be connected to a digital subsystem such as Marvin Test Solutions’ MV-GX5960 digital subsystem, providing hybrid pin capability for each multiplexed I/O pin. Up to 288 digital channels are supported by the switching subsystem.
The MV-GX7016 chassis incorporates the MAC Panel 6U SCOUT receiver. The SCOUT receiver offers a reliable and high performance method to connect the switch modules to a mass interconnect receiver, minimizing the need for cable assemblies. The SCOUT receiver is a “pull-through” design, with each switch card providing a “cable-less” connection to the receiver connectors, - eliminating the need for cable harnesses and the associated reliability issues that come with cabled solutions. The result is a system interconnect design that is cost effective, reliable, and maintainable. The modular design of the SCOUT also allows for the use of a broad range of receiver connectors including high density, high current, and coaxial types. The 6U SCOUT receiver can accommodate up to 21 connector slots and over 8000 connections when fully populated.
The Marvin Test MV-GX7016 is a 20-slot 6U PXI chassis that can accommodate up to 19 switching or instrument cards as well as a remote PXI bus interface such as the MXI-4. In addition to supporting all of the PXI-1 resources, the MV-GX7016’s PXI backplane provides an internal, high performance, 16 wire, analog bus via the backplane’s P5 connectors. Each of the GENASYS switching cards connects to this internal 16 wire bus, providing the ability to route signals from an external instrument to any of the receiver’s interface connections.
System power for the MV-GX7016 is provided by a 755 watt power supply. Forced-air cooling for the chassis is provided by a four (4) 79 CFM fans mounted under the card cage - providing positive airflow per the PXI specification. This configuration provides the optimum cooling for the chassis regardless of the type or number of instruments or switch cards used. Additional cooling is provided for the system power supply. This cooling configuration, in conjunction with air plenums within the chassis, provides airflow for all module slots per the PXI specification and requires no additional rack space for inlet or outlet air.
The MV-GX7016 Switching Subsystem chassis supports the monitoring of slot temperatures and system power supply voltages as well providing the ability to program or map each PXI trigger line from one PCI segment to another. In addition, the user can program the temperature monitoring function for specific warning and shutdown limits. All user specific setups can be stored in non-volatile memory as a user configuration and can be used as the default setup for normal chassis operation.
