Migrating from VME to VPX or PCIe: Key Considerations Webcast Replay

In this Tech Tuesday webcast, several important topics are covered for migrating from VME to VPX or PCIe. Listen as Acromag’s National Sales Manager gives an overview of the advantages and disadvantages of VME architecture. Then learn general key considerations when migrating to PCIe or VPX; advantages, disadvantages, complexity, performance and cost.

VME Boards for Embedded Computing

Acromag’s line of VME boards and VME carriers provide a variety of high-performance embedded computing solutions. Applications include: defense, aerospace, and scientific and research labs. The VMEbus SBC processor modules offer a range of CPU, I/O, memory, and hardware configurations to further satisfy your unique application requirements. VME single-board computers have an Intel® Core™ i7 Core Processor, therefore extending the life of your systems. Our popular VME 6U SBC modules feature Intel i7 Core CPUs for high-performance, multi-core computing. Additionally, there are multiple front and rear connections for Gigabit Ethernet, USB, and serial ports, plus a PMC slot; consequently providing great flexibility for high-speed communication and I/O tasks.

VPX Carrier Cards & Single Board Computers

Acromag VPX single board computers and VPX carrier cards are ideal for high-performance defense and scientific research systems requiring high-speed I/O with serial fabric interconnect technologies. Equally important, VPX carrier cards provide simple and cost-effective solutions for interfacing AcroPack®, PMC or XMC I/O modules to a VPX system.

PCIe Carrier Boards

These non-intelligent carrier cards interface AcroPack, XMC, and PMC, as well as Industry Pack mezzanine modules to a PCI Express bus in a PC-based embedded computer.
