Reflective Memory

Read More

Reflective Memory networks are Real Time Local Area Networks in which each computer always has an up-to-date local copy of the shared memory set. These specialty networks are specifically designed to provide highly deterministic data communications. They deliver the tightly timed performance necessary for a variety of distributed simulation and industrial control applications. Reflective Memory networks have benefited from advances in general-purpose data networks, but they remain an entirely independent technology, driven by different requirements and catering to applications where determinism, implementation simplicity, and a lack of software overhead are key factors.

CPCI-5579 CPCI-5579 CompactPCI High Capacity Reflective Memory with Interrupts
MB1-5576 The MB1-5576 is a Multibus I board which may be used with other 5576 family boards to form a high-performance, daisy-chained, fiber-optic network.
PCI-5565

PCI-5565 is the PCI member of the GE Embedded Systems’ 5565 family of Reflective Memory real-time network products. The other members of the family are VME-5565, PCI-5565, PMC-5565, and CBL-5565.

PCI-5576 PCI-5576 is a PCI bus board which may be used with other VMIC 5576 family boards to form a high-performance, daisy-chained, fiber-optic network. The network-compatible members of the 5576 family include the VME-5576 and MB1-5576.
PCI-5579 The PCI-5579 is a member of a high- performance, daisy-chained, fiber-optic network.
PCI-5587A The PCI-5587A is a member of the high performance, daisy-chained, fiber-optic network. Data is transferred by simply writing to on-board global RAM.
PCI-5588 PCI-5588 is a high-performance, daisy-chained PCI-to-PCI network. Data is transferred by writing to on-board global RAM.
PMC-5565 PMC-5565 is the PCI mezzanine card (PMC) member of the our 5565 family of Reflective Memory real-time network products. The other members of the family are VME-5565, VMEbus-compatible board, and PCI-5565.
PMC-5579 PMC-5579 is a member of a high-performance, daisy-chained, fiber-optic network. Data is transferred by writing to on-board global RAM. The data is automatically sent to the location in memory on all Reflective Memory boards on the network.
VME-5550 VME-5550 is a high-performance multidrop VME-to-VME network. Data is transferred by writing to on-board global RAM. The data is automatically sent to the location in memory on all Reflective Memory boards on the network.
VME-5576 175 Mega Baud VME-5576 VME Fiber-Optic Reflective Memory with Interrupts. Using GE Intelligent Platforms VMEbus CPU boards, SFT-9420 supports reflective memory access. Support for interrupts, DMA and IP requires additional software supplied by the user.
VME-5588 VME-5588 Reflective Memory interface allows data to be shared between up to 256 independent systems (nodes) at rates up to 29.5 Mbyte/s. VME-5588 is a high-performance, daisy-chained VME-to-VME network.
