Migrating Your Automatic Test Equipment from VXI to PXI

This video discusses upgrading an automatic electronic functional test process from legacy Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) to the latest industry-standard platform. VXI was one of the first successes in modular test platforms and has served industries such as Aerospace and Defense for over 30 years. However, many test and measurement companies are now no longer supporting the standard. While the wide availability of PXI switching modules makes the choice of migrating VXI switching hardware relatively easy, there are also potential issues to consider which we discuss in the video along with the advantages of making a move from VXI to PXI.
