EX7105A High-Density, Small Channel Count Switch System
High Density for Low Channel Count Applications
The EX7105A is designed for switching applications that require both high-density measurements and low channel
counts. As an ideal solution for compact switching, this instrument provides an extensive list of available relay modules
in SPDT, SP4T, and SP6T configurations, a front load design that’s easy to configure/maintain, and an 8-bit TTL I/O bus
that can be used to drive external circuitry.
Intuitive Command and Control
The EX7015A’s software architecture allows easy integration with other GPIB, PXI, VXI, LXI or USB instruments. The
software drivers are based on the IVI industry standard and can be used within virtually any development environment. A
graphical, web-based interface provides the necessary tools for controlling and monitoring an EX72SF through local or
remote access using a web browser.
The EX7105A leverages the EX7000 feature set to provide users with tools that can be used to enhance the efficiency of
their applications. These tools include scan lists, exclude lists, programmable MBB and BBM, pre-defined configuration
storage, LXI Class trigger events, IEEE 1588 synchronization and triggering, and I/O control of other devices.

EX7204A High-Density, Medium Channel Count Switch System
Excellent Performance in a Compact Footprint
The EX7204A offers maximum performance, flexible design options, and an operating range that extends to 26.5 GHz
– all in a compact footprint. Any combination of up to 16 latching building blocks can be housed in a single 2U-rack
enclosure. Like the EX7105A, its building block topologies also include SPDT, SP4T, SP6T and an 8-bit TTL I/O bus.
Intuitive Command and Control
The EX7204A’s software architecture allows easy integration with other GPIB, PXI, VXI, LXI or USB instruments. The
