Concurrent Technologies Launches New VME Board

Concurrent Technologies, a designer and manufacturer of leading-edge computer products, systems, and mission-critical solutions used in high-performance markets by some of the world’s major OEMs, announces the launch of Rhea, a further addition to its VME range of embedded processor boards.

Coincident with the launch of Intel’s latest Atom processor, the Company has released the Rhea VME single-board computer to harness this latest technology for customers looking for a simple, cost-effective upgrade.

VME is a standard that has existed for many years and has been widely deployed in various industrial, research, semiconductor process control, transport, medical, and defense applications worldwide. While no longer the cutting edge of technology, VME continues to be a widely installed architecture, particularly in the defense market, and many organizations have designed their platforms around this standard. Upgrading their computing capability while remaining within the VME environment is crucial to time and cost efficiency. Customers can remove their existing boards and plug a new one into the same slot.

By continuing to support the VME standard, Concurrent is responding to its customers’ needs and extending the revenue-generating lifecycle of a VME product family in which It has invested for more than twenty years.

Rhea offers a wide range of input and output interfaces needed for its target applications. It also enables customers to benefit from the latest security features. It presents a valuable upgrade path when up-to-date VME computer boards are increasingly difficult to source from major vendors.
