Turnkey VME Imaging System Carries Sub-$10k Price Tag

Housed in a rugged VMEbus enclosure and optimized for the industrial factory floor, VMEvision turnkey imaging system features dual 233-MHz Pentium or Pentium II processors with 512 kbytes of cache, a four-channel frame grabber, 64-bitBLT graphics, and up to 256 Mbytes of main memory. The imaging system also provides two 10/100-Mbit/s Ethernet ports, a 9.1-Gbyte Fast/UltraWide SCSI hard drive, an LS-120 Super floppy drive, and a comprehensive library of imaging, graphics and system control functions. To further enhance performance, VMEvision, working together with Windows NT, enables both processors to work concurrently on compute-intensive graphics and imaging tasks. This, together with other techniques, is said to enable VMEvision to deliver a performance level that matches or exceeds that of imaging systems based on DSPs and custom ASICs.
