VME / VXS Product Index
VME continues to be a well supported and widely installed bus architecture in many industries and market segments. One solution to satisfy the continuing need for more bandwidth within VMEbus™ environments is the introduction of new switched serial fabric technology. ANSI/ VITA 41, VMEbus™ Switched Serial or VXS, is an ANSI standard that combines parallel VMEbus™ with enhancements to support switched serial fabrics over a high speed P0 connector. Backward compatibility is maintained with existing backplanes that do not have a conflicting P0 scheme.
Concurrent Technologies offers a choice of VME processor boards which optionally support a VXS interface using either PCI Express® or Gigabit Ethernet fabric. These high performance processor boards are complemented by a choice of Switch Fabric boards, Ethernet switch, PMC carrier, and mass storage modules.
