PXI has become a mainstream test and data acquisition platform in the MIL/Aero market. Numerous programs addressing Depot and Intermediate-level test requirementsnow use PXI as the core of the product.
While the Mil/Aero market and specifically the military would prefer the use of PXI based systems for field and flight-line test applications due to its small size, weight, and cost, the question of suitability needs to be addressed.
