The LXI Consortium has now 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 from a handful of compliant products from just two of the Consortium members in December 2005.
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, Calif.
