IVI Overcomes Industry Challenges
In today's world two factors hinder efficient test system
setup and support:
1) the high cost of developing and
maintaining test system software and, 2) rapidly evolving
technology. The IVI Foundation addresses these needs through
new driver technology:
IVI drivers define a new level of quality, completeness,
usability, and functionality that reduces the cost of
test system development and ownership.
IVI drivers simplify upgrading or replacing components in
complex test systems intended to be used over a long
period of time. The IVI Foundation was formed in 1998
and officially incorporated in 2001. Its membership
includes end-users, instrument vendors, software
vendors, system suppliers, and system integrators.
