SBS Technologies, Inc. Launches New I/O Solutions Program for CompactPCI™ Systems

I/O Select™ Program provides production quantity custom I/O solutions offering numerous benefits

SBS Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq:SBSE) today introduced I/O Select&8482;, a new program designed to provide dedicated I/O solutions for CompactPCI©; applications with high-volume production quantity requirements. In addition to providing all the benefits that off-the-shelf I/O traditionally offers, such as flexibility and modularity, I/O Select helps customers who have higher production quotas meet the demands of decreased time to market and reduced cost. The unique program leverages the embedded hardware and software design experience of SBS Technologies, Inc.'s Modular I/O operation to enable specialized I/O functionality to be quickly designed into a custom CompactPCI board. "The I/O Select Program also enables customers to port their current I/O architecture to a dedicated I/O board design," says David Greig, Vice President, SBS Technologies' Computer Group. "Mezzanine technology has been widely accepted because of flexibility and easy integration capabilities," says Greig. "Our new I/O Select Program enables a system designer to roll a variety of functions onto one board, as opposed to populating a carrier with multiple modules. At higher volume production quantities, this alternative is more efficient from the procurement standpoint and results in overall lower cost per board." The Program will begin immediately. Contact SBS Modular I/O for more information on program pricing at (650) 327-1200.
