This month’s Pick is the VME120 from General Micro Systems (Figure 1). The SBC is the company’s ninth-generation 6U VME SBC module based on GMS’s upgradable CPU “computing engine” technology. According to GMS, the product is perfect for defense programs that designed in VME and can’t easily requalify or afford a complete redesign to VPX. But adding “more” to VME is still desirable, and that’s the key benefit of the GMS VME120. It is a multi-optioned version of a well-proven GMS VME board designed into countless U.S. Navy platforms.
