[Avionics Today 07-18-2016] Astronics Test Systems has announced the availability of a new Frequency Time Interval Counter (FTIC) in collaboration with National Instruments Corp. The new Astronics PXIe-2461 is a high-performance, two
channel, universal 235 MHz frequency interval counter. It is the first product developed from Astronics’ collaboration with NI, announced in November 2015, to revitalize legacy aerospace and defense test systems.
Designed for full test program sets (TPS) compatibility, the instrument can replace existing VXI-based FTICs and deliver the same capability in a newer PXI-based subsystem. With outstanding resolution of up to nine digits per second, the resolution can be 1 ns in single-shot mode and 100 ps in average mode.
