AXIe is an open system modular instrumentation standard based on AdvancedTCA that delivers high performance instrumentation for wireless communications, aerospace defense, high-energy physics, high-speed digital test, and other industries.
AXIe is often referred to as the “Big Brother to PXI.” It offers a similar PCI Express data fabric to PXI, but is hosted on larger and deeper modules, enabling greater power and rack density. In turn, this offers both very high performance instrumentation and a smaller footprint. Small horizontal configurations start with just 2U rack space, half the size of a PXI chassis, while AXIe is scalable to 5-slot and 14-slot configurations. The industry’s fastest modular digitizers, AWGs, and digital test products can be found in AXIe. High-speed triggers, timing, and local bus allow precision synchronization across all modules. AXIe systems are programmed identically to PXI systems, using the same IVI drivers, and can be easily integrated with PXI, VXI, and LXI. With proven interoperability with eight vendors already offering products, AXIe is the clear choice for high performance modular systems.
