Pickering Interfaces Releases New Edition of the Book – "LXImate" - A Practical Guide to the LXI Standard

Aug 01, 2013

Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of signal switching and conditioning solutions, announces the release of the third edition of its book; "LXImate" - A Practical Guide to the LXI Standard and Getting Started with LXI Devices.

LXImate is an overview of the LXI Standard-an open, accessible standard identifying specifications and solutions relating to the functional test, measurement and data acquisition industry. This new edition has been updated to reflect the change in how products are offered, moving away from a class structure to a structure describing a Core Specification and a set of optional Extended Functions. This change has enabled the LXI Consortium to respond quickly to support enhancements like IPv6 and to adopt HiSLIP, a standard created by the IVI Foundation, without disruption to the Core Specification.

In addition to describing the standard and how to connect to LXI Devices, the new version of the LXImate also describes how Pickering Interfaces has adopted the LXI Standard to address its core markets in switching.

The LXI Standard has been incredibly successful across a range of different applications and markets. The third edition of the LXImate brings the publication up-to-date to show how the LXI Consortium has evolved the standard to ensure that it can respond to technology changes and market demand,” said David Owen, Business Development Manager for Pickering Interfaces and Chair of the LXI Consortium’s Technical Committee. “LXI has allowed Pickering to create and control switching systems that would be difficult in alternative platforms; it also provides robustness against changes in operating systems. In products such as our 65-110 Wideband Modular Matrix, chosen by CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research), LXI has allowed us to present a user scalable solution that behaves as a single coherent entity rather than individual modules. Pickering has been involved in the LXI Standard since the early days of its creation. We have always believed that LXI is complementary to our PXI switching business and that belief is supported by the unique switching products we have created using the LXI Standard”.

About LXI

LXI (LAN-based eXtensions for Instrumentation) is the latest evolution of communications for instrumentation in the Test & Measurement industry. Designed to provide consistent interoperability and synchronization, LXI takes the benefits of Ethernet and the experience of almost 40 years of Test & Measurement standards to create a standard that saves time in areas like integration, programming, and supporting unique applications. 
LAN is everywhere and more and more, so are your test systems. LXI puts the power of Ethernet and the web inside those systems. 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. For more information, go to www.lxistandard.org.
