LXI - LAN eXtensions for Instruments

LAN is everywhere. 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. LXI: It´s about your time.
