The Future of VME / Rugged Computing in the Military

VMEbus is arguably the most common form factor used in military computer systems. Originally developed in 1981, it’s still widely used today because not only are there so many legacy systems in the field, but it also has proven to be very adaptable and upgradeable, giving birth to offshoots such as VME64, VXIbus, and VPX. In addition, this platform has the support of VITA – the VME International Trade Association.

This 60-minute Technical Webinar from the editors of Tech Briefs Media examines the various types of VME platforms and their benefits, as well as how VME is applied to military rugged computing. An audience Q&A follows the technical presentations.
