“VME has experienced a number of evolutions during its more than 25 years in existence. These have allowed the architecture to remain not only relevant, but prominent in many designs and production cycles,” says Richard Dean, VDC’s Embedded Hardware & Systems research practice director. “An important part of this evolution is the VXS standard, which has brought new performance capabilities, including high-bandwidth serial fabrics, to the VME architecture.”
VXS delivers high-speed serial IO capability and up to 30Gbps data-rate performance, while maintaining the vast VME hardware and software ecosystem.
“The VXS architecture continues to evolve with higher performance options and new features,” says Justin Moll, chair of the VXS Marketing Alliance. “With a combination of performance, backward-compatibility, and a wide selection of established products in the marketplace, VXS continues to grow and thrive.”
