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.

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