LXI unveiled the veil of future testing

at the time of publication of this article, the LXI alliance, which is composed of all major testing and measurement (t m) companies, will soon release the specification of version 1.0 of LXI (LAN extensions for instrumentation). LXI is probably the most important in the field of testing and measurement since the invention of HP-IB (Hewlett Packard interface bus) in 1972. Over the past 30 years, hundreds of thousands of GP energy saving IB (HP-IB) instruments have been used. Now, LXI has established a new way from IEEE-488 (universal interface bus) to Ethernet communication bus between instrument and PC. The choice is not only for shape factors, such as the choice of desktop GPIB instruments that can be mounted and stacked, or card box modular instrument products such as VXI or PXI. LXI should unswervingly promote the structure to accommodate both standard instruments (with front panel display and keyboard) and instrument modules (instruments without front panel) in a test system system to resolve excess capacity. At this time, LAN becomes the communication backbone of the system

let us optimize the variety structure to understand the main characteristics of LXI equipment and the differences with existing GPIB, VXI and PXI products
