PXI (PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation) is a rugged modular test platform specifically designed to allow for flexible, fast multiple instrument synchronised measurements in a reduced footprint compared to the more usual rack & stack equipment.
PXI combines standard PC technology from the CompactPCI® specification with integrated timing, synchronisation and triggering to deliver a rugged platform with up to a hundred times more performance improvement compared to any other test and measurement architectures. PXI has become an increasingly important industry standard for measurement and automation applications.
Amplicon has a comprehensive range of PXI products and solutions coupled with many years of expertise; PXI modules from Amplicon come with a comprehensive portfolio of instrument drivers, documentation and examples for Microsoft® C/C++, C#, or Visual Basic, MATLAB, VEE, LabVIEW software platforms.
We can also supply the newer PXIe technology, this is the same as PXI but uses the PCI Express bus architecture commonly found in modern day PC's rather than PCI. This means faster measurements, quicker processing and more importantly improved productivity.
