The article offers information on the 2015 National Electronics Week exhibition in Birmingham, England, focusing on the demonstrations from PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation (PXI) modular test system suppliers. PXI suppliers present at the event include ATE Solutions, Thurlby Thandar Instruments, and Aspen Electronics. It highlights the growing engineering interest in PXI-based modular test systems as well as discusses the different uses of PXI modular instruments.
