LXI Consortium Reaches Milestone of 1,500 Instruments as LXI-Compliant

Growing Range of Instruments Simplifies the Creation of All-LXI Test Racks

NIWOT, CO--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - The LXI Consortium is pleased to announce that it has to date certified 1,500 commercially available LXI-compliant instruments from 32 different manufacturers in 188 separate product families. The number of LXI-compliant instruments has grown dramatically in just a few years, starting from a handful of compliant products from just two of the Consortium members in December 2005. This expansion in instrument availability will enhance the widespread acceptance of the LXI platform and encourage migration to LXI from older instrument platforms.

"The acceleration in LXI adoption by manufacturers continues, and we're pleased to see so many member companies incorporating an LXI product roadmap in their development plans," said Consortium President Von Campbell. "With 188 product families now included in the LXI portfolio, it's even easier for a test engineer to build a complete LXI instrument-based solution."

The certification follows very rigid guidelines explains Jochen Wolle, Conformance Chair. "We certify instruments to assure your LXI devices work seamlessly together through an open standard environment. The testing uses the LXI conformance test software application combined with face-to-face testing at various test houses and at plugfests. This ensures a consistent programming environment and interoperability between products from many vendors."

The next LXI General Meeting and PlugFest is scheduled for May 16-18 in San Diego, CA.

About LXI and the LXI Consortium
The LXI Standard creates new capabilities that optimize test throughput, overall system performance, and cost efficiency in a way that allows engineers to build powerful, web-enabled test systems in less time. The LXI Consortium, a not-for-profit corporation comprised of leading test and measurement companies, manages the Standard. The group's goals are to develop, support, and promote the LXI Standard. LXI's flexible packaging, high-speed I/O, and standardized use of LAN connectivity address a broad range of commercial, industrial, aerospace, and military applications. By standardizing and extending LAN, LXI offers you new possibilities in system design -- local, remote, distributed, time-aware. With LXI, you can create the system you need today -- and quickly move forward to the one you need next.
LXI: It's about your time.
