Each NK Series matrix can be configured with up to 8 partitions, effectively making two or more smaller routers from one larger one. Each partition can be assigned to a unique or common switching level. As an example, a single analog video matrix could be partitioned into 3 sections to switch YUV or RGB signals.
The example at top shows crosspoint assignments when a 32 x 32 router is partitioned. The image displays a 32 x 32 router with no partitions (top left); a 32 x 32 router partitioned as two 16 x 16 routers (top right); a 32 x 32 router partitioned as three 10 x 10 routers (lower left); and a 32 x 32 router partitioned as four 8 x 8 routers (lower right).
