LXinstruments GmbH was originally founded in 2006 as a solution provider for all questions concerning instruments and systems in electronic measurement technology. Our systems are mainly based on the LXI Standard (Lan based Extensions for Instrumentation), an open industry standard. Already in 2009 the sister company bsw TestSystems & Consulting was integrated into the company family. With its RF solutions, it primarily serves the semiconductor and telecommunications industry as well as university and research institutions. The technical portfolio of the two companies complements each other to form a comprehensive offering in electronic measurement technology. The portfolio is completed by the successive expansion of the distribution of electronic components and the partnership with an American manufacturer of electrical safety test equipment.
With the acquisition of the distribution company StanTronic Instruments in 2014, above all the range of powerful instruments for price-conscious customers and the distribution of PXI/PCI modules was added to the product range. In 2019, StanTronic Instruments was first converted into an LXinstruments brand and shortly afterwards the new subsidiary LXinstruments (Schweiz) AG was opened near Bern. Since the end of 2019, LXinstruments also holds a 49% stake in fabricATE, Turkey. This means that the group of companies now has six locations: from its headquarters in Sindelfingen with a further office in Munich, via Birmingham and Boxmeer (Netherlands) to Bern and Ankara.
