Big brother: AXIe extends PXI performance
PXI, and a larger format standard, AXIe, are causing a revolution in the instrumentation industry. Traditional “box” instruments with knobs and displays are giving way to faceless modular instruments that are controlled by a computer, such as a desktop or laptop, or even embedded within the modular chassis itself. With this new format come speed, size reduction, flexibility, and lower cost.
