Pickering Interfaces announced the launching of its Built-In Relay Self Test (BIRST) modules on LAN Extensions for Instrumentation (LXI) devices, which fully comply with the LXI 1.3 specification. Marketing Manager for Pickering Interfaces (USA), Bob Stasonis says, "LXI inquiries have been particularly strong in the last 6 months as more and more users are realizing the benefits of this platform. These inquiries are leading to a steadily increasing number of switching solutions being made available by Pickering Interfaces and LXI is becoming an increasingly important part of our business model."

He further adds, "But PXI [PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation] is as usual an important part of our business and we are committed to continuing to expand our range of switching solutions using this platform. We consider PXI and LXI to be complimentary platforms that we will pursue in parallel, selecting the most appropriate platform for each application."

Since the verification and diagnosis of complex switching operation in a test system has always been an issue, especially in the PXI platform, Pickering Interfaces has developed a range of PXI modules with BIRST. lthough the first PXI modules with BIRST have been released in 2009, new launches continue to include BIRST in PXI matrix modules. At the upcoming Autotestcon in the US, BIRST on LXI Devices will be launched and demonstrated on a 60-555 LXI matrix.
