Pickering Switch & Simulation Division

Modular Signal Switching, Simulation & Software for use in Electronic Test and Verification

We deliver modular PXI, PCI, LXI, & USB signal switching and simulation, connectivity solutions, diagnostic test tools and application software and software drivers for automated test.

Design, Deploy & Sustain Your Automated Test System

Enhance your engineering team's effectiveness by working with the collaborative, creative and agile culture of Pickering. We offer products and services to streamline the development and deployment of your high-performance electronic test and verification systems.

  • Design - Defining a test system can be challenging. Your goal is to accelerate your test system design process using a flexible platform. We have the expertise you need to help you get the job done, on time and on budget. 
  • Deploy - Once your system is defined and architected, you need to solve the challenges of deploying that system into production. We provide resources to reduce test integration time and increase test throughput.
  • Sustain - A strategic test development strategy does not stop at the design and deployment phase. To sustain it once in production, you need to have quality hardware and tools for diagnosis—maximizing uptime and lowering the total cost of ownership.

Supporting our customers across the world

The best hardware is only usable if its software control environment is robust and easy-to-use. Take a look at our application software packages and software drivers.

We offer diagnostic test tools that provide you a quick and simple way of finding relay failures within our PXI, LXI and PCI switch and simulation systems.

Because we manufacture our products in-house, we are able to provide you with guaranteed long-term support and low obsolescence.

We supply and support our products across the globe, with seven offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia as well as additional representation.

Just some of our advantages

Wide product range

With over 1,000 PXI modules alone, we cover virtually every application that can be tested, and we are continually working to develop new products.


Standard 3-year warranty

Confidence in product uptime is important to us. All products manufactured by us come with a standard 3-year warranty from date of delivery.

Low obsolescence

Although we offer a 3-year warranty as standard we've built a reputation for reliability and our products have a history of longevity, typically 15-20 years.

Over 50 years of experience

Our experience not only includes switching & simulation technology, we also have in-house design and manufacturing of quality reed relays via our sister company.
