PXImate-practical-guide-to-PXIPickering Interfaces, a leading provider of modular signal switching and instrumentation for use in electronic test and simulation, announces the release of the fifth edition of its book; "PXImate" – A Practical Guide to Using PXI.

PXImate, the only PXI reference book available, is an 86-page book that provides an overview of the PXI (PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation) standard along with useful information about the technology behind the PXI switching and instrumentation modules a typical chassis can contain. The book will help those new to PXI systems get a general understanding of the standard and it also serves as a useful reference for the more experienced user. The PXImate book is a living document that Pickering Interfaces continues to develop in support of the PXI standard and its future evolution. This new edition has been substantially updated and contains information on the latest changes in the PXI specification, including PXImc (PXI Multi Computing) and the Trigger Management System. 

“PXI has emerged as a major force in the test equipment and automation industry. Our PXImate book is an important reference document for any engineer who is starting to work with PXI," says Bob Stasonis, Pickering’s Sales and Marketing Director and a member of the Board of Directors for the PXISA (PXI Systems Alliance). “This is Pickering’s contribution to the educational needs of the test and automation industry, providing accurate information about the specification and how you interact with PXI in a test/automation environment.”
