Cover Story: The PXI Bus Hits its Stride

December 18, 2008 7:23 am | by Jon Titus, Senior Technical Editor | Articles | Comments

As you might guess from its name, the PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation bus, or PXI bus, takes advantage of the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) technology developed for personal computers. Just as the original PCI bus lets users add cards to a PC motherboard, the PXI bus lets instrument-system developers connect measurement and control modules through a standard backplane.
