The Agilent E1465A Relay Matrix Switch is a C-size, 1-slot, register-based VXI module. This 16 x 16 matrix switches each crosspoint both high and low. The E1465A features easy expansion to larger matrixes via a chaining cable that allows you to interconnect rows and columns on different modules. A full E1401B 13-slot mainframe can have up to 3072 two-wire crosspoints.
The E1465A module provides the best cost-per-crosspoint for large matrix applications. It shares the same switch card with the E1466A and E1467A; each product's unique terminal block determines the matrix configuration. Therefore, you can change matrix topology simply by plugging in the various terminal blocks. The terminal blocks can be obtained separately. Creating a matrix as large as 32 x 32 requires four matrix modules and interconnected rows and columns on the terminal blocks. All the E1465/66/67A matrix modules offer similar densities, with different row/column sizes and identical performance specifications. All specifications are identical for this family, except for crosstalk.
