One of the world's leading architectures for high reliability electronics applications is the VME platform.
The VME standard is managed by the VME bus International Trade Association, VITA.
Embedded computing's most successful bus standard, VMEbus, shows no signs of slowing down as it maintains its position as the industry's de facto standard into the 21st century. The foundation of VME's longevity, namely its steady rate of technological evolution combined with a commitment to backward compatibility with legacy hardware and software, has been the linchpin of its popularity for nearly twenty-five years. Today, innovative enhancements to the standard, through the VME Standards Organisation (VSO), continue to improve VMEbus' speed, performance and reliability, strengthening its position as the ideal solution for today's increasingly stringent commercial, industrial and military system requirements (Source: VITA).
Data Patterns has implemented a number of standard VME boards, driven by Customer needs for Processor and IO requirements in this platform. Today, standard modules are available covering the needs of:
- Avionics grade Conduction cooled Single Board Computers with 7410 Power PC processors
- High Reliability Air cooled 755 / 7410 processor boards
- Rugged IP Carriers enabling functionality to be provided through IP modules for Digital I/O, Serial Communication standards, and other functions
- Special functions for Applications such as Synchro / Resolver Inputs and Outputs
Other I/O functions such as Analog I/O and Digital I/O available form our IP and Mezzanine Module families can be directly integrated in VME systems.
Further functions needed for applications can be developed by Data Patterns in very short time frames, where such a development is appropriate to project requirements.
Data Patterns in now developing unique products in the VME based system, leveraging the latest techniques in ultra fast computing and high bandwidth inter processor communications. Burst Transfer Speeds of up to 2000 Mbytes per second, as well as switch fabric techniques for flexible routing of communication bandwidth resources are provided. These boards are targeted at Radar, Image and Sonar signal processing applications.
