The flexibility of the MVME3600 provides an excellent base platform that can be quickly and easily customized for a variety of industry-specific applications. Designed to meet the needs of military and aerospace and industrial automation applications, MVME3600 board-level computer consist of a processor-memory module and a base I/O module, both 6U, assembled to form a single two-slot brick. This modular structure allows the processor module to be upgraded (including sufficient space for multiprocessor implementations) and provides the physical space for an increased range of networking and mass storage expansion interfaces. DRAM expansion mezzanines enable memory upgrades to the maximum 1GB of ECC DRAM without requiring additional VME slots. The tightly coupled multiprocessor configuration of the dual processor MVME4600 provides additional computing power for the most demanding tasks, including simulation and database or matrix manipulation.
