The AXIe consortium adopted the AXIe-2 specification in January 2012. This specification ensures that system integrators can access the necessary information to create an AXIe system in a consistent fashion. A key feature of the specification is that it utilizes PXI so that system integrators can easily build systems that take advantage of the benefits of both the smaller PXI modules and the larger, higher power AXIe modules.
The AXIe-2 standards ensure that a system integrator can:
- Combine instrument modules, chassis, and system modules from different vendors and still have an application work.
- Get a list of what is connected to the system including the addresses of the modules.
- Write a measurement application using the system.
- Use PXI and AXIe products in a single system and have a consistent experience across the standards.
