AXIe is often referred to as the “big brother” of PXI. It is a large format modular instrument standard with many similarities to PXI. A quick summary of the AXIe standard and its applications can be found here. You can see why AXIe is called PXI’s big brother. The photograph of the two modules together shows the module size of AXIe is deeper, taller, and wider than PXI.
As we approach the two-year anniversary of the first AXIe specifications, I thought I might give an overview of where AXIe stands in the industry. AXIe is finding applications in Mil/Aero, semiconductor, and physics. In this week’s blog I summarize what is driving adoption in each segment and offer observations of where AXIe sits as a standard. You can find the my blog here.
