VME VXS Board Manufacturers

This is a listing of VMEbus COTS [Commercial-Off-The-Self] VXS Card manufacturers, and vendors. VXS is a new card style in the VME card format.
The types of products or devices they produce are listed under the company name, in alphabetic order. Mezzanine card Manufacturers are listed on their own page.
All other card formats are listed on the COTS Card Manufacturers page. See the main Interface Bus page for a description of other bus formats. Detailed information on the VMEbus standard may be found on it's VME Bus Definition page.
In addition to functional cards; Protoboards, Extender cards, and Prototyping board manufacturers are also listed below.
Extender boards may be either Passive [straight through] or Active [buffered signals].

Agilent {High-speed digitizers with on-board FPGA for real time signal processing. Ideal for electronic warfare (EW),
ESM/ECM, radar digital receiver/transmitter, telecommunications, and semiconductor testing applications, where both high sample rate and high bandwidth are required.}

Alpha Data {VXS FPGA card and carrier for FPGA based COTS boards with interchangeable I/O adapters: Virtex5, Virtex6}

CSP Inc. {VXS Switch Module, 6U 16-port crossbar switch}

Elma Bustronic Corp. {VXS Processor Mesh Backplane, Mesh VXS Backplanes, Dual Star VXS Backplanes, Single Star VXS Backplanes}

Concurrent Technologies Inc. {2GHz Intel Core Duo VXS Board}

Creative Electronic Systems 'CES' {Reconfigurable PowerPC-Based 6U VXS Computer}

Curtiss Wright {VxS VITA 41 Boards}

Elma {VITA 41.0 VXS backplane specifications}

GE Embedded Systems {22-port Serial RapidIO switch card, 6U quad 8641/8640D multicomputer}

Pentek {Dual 215 MHz A/D Converter VME Board w/FPDP Output, optional VXI support}

Tekmicro {VXS Board; Digitizers Virtex-5 FPGA}

Three card heights are allowed with VME; 3U, 6U, or 9U. Length is either 160mm or 340mm. The other possible lengths are: 100/160/220/280/340/400mm

A size PWB = 3U x 160mm,
B size PWB = 6U x 160mm,
C size PWB = 6U x 340mm,
D size PWB = 9U x 340mm ... H x L x W

A, B, C, and D are VXI terms. VME normally only references 3U or 6U by a length.
VMEbus Extender cards come in any one of the board sizes listed above. Extender boards are used to extend the card under test out the front of the VME chassis [so it may be worked on]. The extender card will provide male connectors on one end of the card [to plug into the chassis backplane] and female connectors on the other end of the card [to allow the test card to plug in]. A VMEbus card extender may be either passive or active. A passive board extender simply runs the VMEbus signal from the backplane to the card under test. In some cases passive board extenders also provide jumpers or shunts to by-pass signals. Active extender boards provide signal buffering between the card under test and the VME bus backplane.

This is a listing of COTS [Commercial-Off-The-Shelf] VXS card Manufacturers. The board products the companies produce or manufacturer are listed under the company name which are indexed in alphabetic order. In addition to functional VME cards, VME Prototyping Boards, and Active/Passive VME Extender Board Manufacturers are also listed above. All other COTS card manufacturers [in other formats] are listed on the COTS Card page. Manufacturers of Mezzanine [Daughter] boards are listed on COT's Mezzanine Cards page. Additional Electronic Equipment may be found by selecting the OEM Equipment Icon below. Descriptions of the different Mezzanine interface buses are listed on the Mezzanine Buses page. A Description of the VMEbus interface standard is listed on the VME Bus page. Manufacturers of VME bus chassis are located on the Chassis and Cases page. Companies that manufacturer VME Backplanes are located on the Backplane page.
