Why Use LXI?

The LXI standard offers low-cost, open-standard LAN (Ethernet) as the system backbone. 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. View more benefits of LXI
