The LXI Consortium is a not-for-profit corporation initially established by Keysight Technologies (formerly Agilent Technologies Electronic Measurement Group) and VTI Instruments (formerly called VXI Technology). Its primary purpose is to promote the development and adoption of the LXI Standard, an open, accessible standard identifying specifications and solutions relating to the functional test, measurement and data acquisition industry.
The Consortium is open to all test and measurement companies, and participation by industry/university professionals, systems integrators, and government representatives is also highly encouraged. Membership is divided into five levels: Strategic, Participating, Advisory, Informational and University.
Since all LXI products are certified as compliant, test engineers are assured that combinations
of LXI products will integrate well together and that there is a
consistent user experience between products. This is a key advantage of becoming an LXI Consortium member. Other advantages include:
use of the LXI logo, increased product exposure, joint marketing activities, etc.
