AdvancedTCA Extensions for Instrumentation and Test (AXIe) is a modular instrumentation standard created by Aeroflex, Agilent Technologies, and Test Evolution Corporation.[1] (In October 2008, Aeroflex had purchased a 40% shareholding in Test Evolution.[2])

AXIe was targeted for general-purpose instrumentation and semiconductor test. AXIe is based on standards from AdvancedTCA (ATCA), PXI, LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation (LXI), and IVI. AXIe was formally launched on November 10, 2009.[3][4]

Additional members joining the AXIe Consortium were: Guzik Technical Enterprises (December 2009), Giga-tronics (January 2010), ADLINK Technology, and Modular Methods.[5]
