PXI architecture gets better support
Richard Wilson National Instruments has announced increased third party support and new processing cards for the PXI modular instrumentation architecture. The architecture, which is compatible with the VXI virtual instrumentation system, is gaining in PC-based test and instrumentation applications through its compatibility with the CompactPCI bus architecture. Third party vendor support for PXI includes GenRad, Dolch Computer Systems and Ziatech. Some of the PXI cards being introduced include switches, with SCSI, 100bit/s Ethernet and PCMCIA interfaces. National continues to capitalise on using the benefits of the PC architecture and software in test applications with the introduction of its first low cost test modules that connect to the host PC via the universal serial bus.
