LXI Consortium Celebrates its Tenth Anniversary


The LXI (LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation) Consortium, Inc. is celebrating its 10th anniversary. It has grown from 13 member companies in 2004 to a standard-setting organization including 52 of the leading Test and Measurement (T&M) companies in the world. There are now 2,614 LXI-conformant products in 262 different product families from 39 vendors. The LXI Consortium has conformance testing houses on three continents in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.

The Consortium issued the first release of the LXI specifications in September 2005, only one year after it was founded. The first LXI products were released in December of the same year. Now exceeding 2600 products, the LXI Standard has shown the fastest growth and market acceptance of any T&M standard.

The LXI Consortium provides the global infrastructure that supports the development, testing, maintenance and promotion of the LXI specifications.

“I am proud to be the president of such a successful standards body. Our adoption within the T&M industry continues to grow. I am excited about the efforts we have underway within the LXI Consortium to support our vision of global adoption and utilization of LXI in the decades to come!” said Steve Schink, president of the LXI Consortium.
