It gives classic VMEbus
systems new thrust with state-of-the-art computing power, but without all the cooling problems today's multimedia-oriented PCs would generate.
As one of the original creators of VMEbus
, Motorola continues to work with key industry partners to drive a period of innovation and performance improvement through the VME Renaissance that will deliver significant enhancements over the coming years, while continuing to protect customers' existing investments.
As a de facto standard, the VMEbus
can be found in a wide variety of applications.
The reception of the microwave downlink channel from a satellite (both in orbit or on the ground) has been implemented successfully within the VMEbus
environment by several telemetry equipment vendors.
Users can now buy boards to run such software on the STD Bus, the VMEbus
, the Multibus I and II, and the NuBus.
The VME-7809 6U VMEbus
features an Intel Pentium processor and up to 2GB of memory.
During the last few years, the VITA 41 Committee of the VMEbus
Standards Organization has been defining VXS.
Dy 4 has also introduced a LynxOS 4.0 operating system board computer that reduces development costs for embedded VMEbus
INTEGRITY 4.0 introduces a number of significant I/O, file system, and networking enhancements, including a fully featured OHCI/UHCI USB stack with associated mouse, keyboard, hub and audio drivers, as well as drivers for CompactPCI and VMEbus
backplane communications (shared memory and TCP/IP), I2C and a variety of real-time clocks and timers.
PPC4B PowerPC COTS VMEbus
single-board computers implement high bandwidth memory architecture coupled to the latest high-frequency PowerPC processors.
The unit uses VMEbus
control for gain, frequency band selection, preselection, and narrow/wide bandwidth selection.
Solaris Systems (Anaheim, CA) recently came out with the "TransPak" family of rugged, portable workstations (for SPARC, VMEbus
Department of Justice has issued Business Review Letters that endorse a policy of ex ante price disclosure at VMEbus
International Trade Association (VITA) (an SSO that promotes the VMEbus
computer architecture) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
The orders were for quantities of GE Fanuc's VME-7809 VMEbus
single board computer and NETernity RM921 Ethernet switches, which will eventually be deployed in the Lockheed Martin AN/UYQ-70 C4 (command, control, communications and computer) system.
In October of 1981, three semiconductor companies announced the open-architecture VMEbus
, spawned by the introduction of the Motorola 68000 microprocessor.
