The LXI Consortium (San Diego, CA) announced tremendous industry response to the initial open membership meeting held in mid-November 2004. Attended by over 20 industry-leading test and measurement corporations from the United States, Europe, and Asia, the membership now stands at 14 companies, including Aeroflex, Agilent Technologies, Analogic, Bruel & Kjaer, California Instruments, Complete Networks, Elgar Electronics Corporation, IOTech, Keithley Instruments, Measurement Computing Corporation, Phase Matrix, Pickering Interfaces, Teradyne, and VXI Technology. The first meeting saw the formation of technical and marketing committees and plans to create a formal specification release during the first quarter of 2005. Fundamental changes in the scope of the specification were also adopted aimed at addressing a much broader range of industry application areas. According to Aeroflex's Bob Vogel, a strategic member of the LXI Consortium, "We are very excited about the results of this initial meeting and continued support of this industry standards group. The level of participation contributed to a high energy forum to discuss the details and direction of the specification." The LXI Consortium is a not-for-profit corporation made up of leading test and measurement companies. One of the goals of the LXI Consortium is to define standards for communication and data organization between LAN based instruments and computers in the process of achieving efficient automatic-test-equipment (ATE) systems.
