PXI has Two Decades of Success


"The What's and Why's of PXI"

Twenty years ago this year, PXI was announced. Today PXI represents a $700M market with growth rates at or near double digits and with the expectation these standards will last a very long time. For more information on the 20 years of PXI success, read the article from EDN Network here: Read the Article

As a leading manufacturer of PXI switching and simulation modules we are happy to answer any of your questions on the "What's" and "Why's" of PXI. 

The What: PXI, short for PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation, is a rugged PC-based platform that offers a solution for measurement and automation systems. It's modular instrument system is designed to take advantage of the fast data interfaces based on PCI and PCIe bus systems. The PXI system consists of 3 main components; PXI Chassis, The System Controller and The Modules. Click below to learn more about PXI and it's components.

The Why:  With PXI you benefit from the low-cost, high-performance, and flexibility of the latest PC technology and the benefits of an open industry standard. PXI combines standard PC technology with the mechanical form/factor from the CompactPCI™ specification, and added integrated timing and triggering to deliver a rugged platform with major performance improvements compared to other test and measurement architectures.  PXI's mechanical, electrical, and software features define complete systems for test and measurement, data acquisition, and manufacturing applications.

How PXI and Solve Your Toughest Test and Measurement Challenges

The PXI Solution: 

 PXI's success stem from reasons  such as choices in software, vendor  creativity, ability to work with other test  platforms, etc. There are a vast  number of applications that have led  to these successes. Click below to  learn about specific application case  studies where PXI was an important  part of the required electronic test  strategy and in some cases made the  efforts easier.

New 2 Slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis


NEW: 2 Slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis

This new chassis offers a small lightweight form factor, making it ideal for portable, benchtop and space restrictive applications. It supports one or two 3U Pickering PXI modules. The USB compatible and LXI compliant interfaces enable the chassis to be controlled directly through standard interfaces found on most personal computers—allowing for a very cost effective route into the modular test and measurement market.

Over 1000+ PXI Modules

Did you say "Over 1000 modules?"

Yes, That is Right! With over 25 years of signal switching and simulation experience, we have learned that when it comes to electronic test "One Size Does Not Fit All"   We entered the PXI market in 1998 with just a few modules—since then, primarily through customer demand, our PXI range has grown to over 1000 modules. To find out more about our vast range of modules, click below:
