Why you should use LXI instruments in your next T&M system Test & Measurement Designline Blogs 3/9/2011 Post a comment Once, combining separate instruments into an integrated test system meant GPIB interfaces. Today, a world of interface options are available, including Universal Serial Bus (USB) and LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation (LXI). Although there’s definitely a role for USB in T&M system integration, from the perspective of a test system integrator, I think LXI offers an edge.
