NIWOT, CO--(Marketwire - Sep 25, 2012) - The LXI Consortium is pleased to announce its upcoming General Meeting & "Plug Fest" hosted by MathWorks on October 8-10, 2012 in Boston, MA. Member companies are invited to bring new LXI products to validate their conformance with the LXI specification. Certified LXI conformance testers will be on hand to verify that all products submitted for testing comply with the latest LXI specification, including recently approved optional extended functions such as HiSLIP and IPv6.
Certification ensures that all LXI products work seamlessly together, in an open standard environment and with a consistent Web interface. Since the inception of the LXI Standard in 2005, there has been consistent growth in LXI conformant devices as well as vendors of LXI conformant instruments. Currently, there are more than 1740 certified LXI products, in over 220 different product families from more than 34 different vendors.
In addition to conformance testing, member companies use the Plug Fest as an opportunity for the LXI Board, Technical, Conformance, and Marketing Committees to meet. The LXI Marketing Committee will discuss the impact of its redesigned website launched in August this year, the newly created LXI Primer intended to help users quickly learn the ins and outs of LXI, the LXI Newsletter, and plans for an LXI China event in 2013.
