<UL> <LI>Single board computer for optimized ruggedization <LI>On-board PMC slot <LI>Single slot solution </UL>

SBS Embedded Computers announces the availability of the VME-192, a Pentium-based single board computer designed for ruggedization for high performance commercial and telemetry applications. The VME-192 includes an on-board PMC slot, up to 64MB of EDO DRAM, 133 MHz Pentium processor, and up to 72MB of Flash Disk-on-Chip, all in a single VMEbus slot. "The VME-192 is ideal for real-time applications with rugged requirements, including automation, telecommunications and telemetry applications," said Clarence Peckham, President of SBS Embedded Computers. "Its rugged design coupled with the 133 MHz Pentium processor provides a high performance platform for COTS software in embedded environments." Price and Availability
The VME-192 is available for shipment immediately and sells for $3,100 in 100 piece quantities. Features
The VME-192 provides all of the features of a fully-configured PC/AT motherboard, along with additional features such as a built-in Ethernet interface, PMC interface, SCSI-2 interface, SVGA Video, and a compliant of standard desktop I/O including one parallel and two serial I/O ports, keyboard and mouse interface. The VME-192 allows the versatility for the end user to add application specific requirements, and is completely compatible with industry standard PC hardware and software. The VMEbus interface is implemented using Tundra's Universe II VMEbus Interface Controller. It provides a full VME64 interface including master, slave, interrupter, interrupt handler, and system controller function. Designed for ruggedization, the VME-192 circuit board meets the requirements for harsh applications. The board supports standard COTS applications with operating temperatures ranging from 0 to 55 Celsius, and non-operating temperatures ranging from -62 to 85 Celsius. The harsh environment board also supports more ruggedized applications, such as simulation and avionics. With a metal stiffener on the circuit board, the VME-192 is built to accommodate higher levels of shock and vibration. About SBS Embedded Computers
