VXI bus test systems are widely used in the Aerospace and Defense industries due to their high performance, modularity and compact footprint. However, the VXI architecture is now over 30 years old and is starting to suffer from component obsolescence and compliance with the latest industry standards. This has resulted in many leading T&M companies now no longer being able to continue supporting the standard.

Typical VXI users need to be able to support their products for 10, 20 or even 30 years and beyond. There is therefore a burgeoning requirement to start replacing old VXI test systems with a newer architecture – one that is guaranteed to be supported well into the future but is as close to the existing VXI functionality as possible in order to minimize the work involved in migrating a potentially large number of existing test sets across to a new platform.  

PXI (PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation) has rapidly become the de facto platform of choice for replacing or updating older test systems. PXI, like VXI, is based on a modular, industry-standard open architecture, and incorporates and enhances many of the features that made VXI so successful. The difference is that PXI is actively supported by ~ 70 companies worldwide, working under the umbrella of the PXI Systems Alliance (PXISA), the body which publishes the PXI specification and governs the standard. This industry acceptance helps companies such as Pickering Interfaces, one of six current Board level members of the PXISA, to be able to guarantee long term support for all of our 1000+ PXI switching and simulation products.

Although VXI test systems are becoming obsolete and we no longer do any new product development of our VXI switching module family, we continue to offer product support for existing customers. We have also have developed a large range of PXI switching and simulation modules that can replicate ours and other vendors’ VXI products to make your job of integration that much easier.
