Star Trek, The Next Generation…Instrument Standard

My recent blog post [RF] Space, The Final Frontier attracted several comments from readers, all in the same Star Trek meme.  Well done! But in this post I answer one particular reader’s question, “What comes after PXI, and how long does this federation last?”

This is tough to predict, but I give one option- a standard that focuses on cost, ease of use, and bench applications while maintaining backwards compatibility with PXI and AXIe. How is this possible? Keeping with the Star Trek theme, I call it StarX, an abbreviation of Star Trek Extensions for Instrumentation, The Next Generation. StarX’s continuing mission is to explore strange new form factors, seek out new interfaces and new drivers, and to boldly go where no standard has gone before.
