Getting Small. Does one modular standard beat the others?

In my last blog post I summarized the advantages of downsized instrumentation.  More portable, more flexible, higher performance, and lower overall cost were all advantages depending on the application.

It’s pretty clear that modular instrumentation delivers significant space savings over traditional instruments through the elimination of keyboards, displays, and redundant power supplies.  But let’s look specifically at the modular systems themselves.  There are three open modular standards today: VXI, PXI, and AXIe.  Does one clearly deliver greater size reduction than the others?
