Emerson Network Power (Tempe, AZ) has released the MVME4100 single-core, next-generation VMEbus processing blade that is suitable for industrial, medical, and defense/aerospace original equipment manufacturers. The VMEbus computing blades provide backwards compatibility to protect investments in existing VMEbus technologies. The MVME4100's 8548E system-on-chip PowerPC 1.3 GHz processor features a double-precision embedded scalar and vector floating-point APU that delivers next-generation, floating-point processing performance.


The MVME4100 features a range of storage capabilities including 4GB of fully-programmable NAND Flash memory, 2GB of onboard DDR2 SDRAM, and 512KB of non-volatile MVRAM memory. The blade's I/O capabilities include advanced 2eSSR protocol availability capable of bandwidth up to 320 MB/s, four GigE ports, three serial ports, USB 2.0 compatibility, and PCI-E expansion options for maximum performance and flexibility. The board's I/O and firmware are fully backward-compatible with existing MVME3100 and 7100 models to ensure easy interoperability with legacy hardware. For Free Info Click Here
