PXI is a hardware-based modular test standard. If PXI users want to add test capabilities, they have to add another hardware module to a PXI card cage. Now that’s changed with the new ScanWorks® PXI-1000 controller. Let’s say you have ScanWorks and a PXI-1000 controller and you’re doing boundary-scan test (IEEE 1149.1 and 1149.6), but you want to detect a broader spectrum of structural defects so you add another embedded instrumentation test technology like IJTAG (IEEE P1687 Internal JTAG). No, you won’t need another PXI-1000 controller. You just expand the capabilities of ScanWorks and the PXI-1000 that’s already in your PXI chassis takes care of the rest. PXI, meet embedded instrumentation.
