MEN Mikro Elektronik GmbH
Although commonly confused, “safe” and “reliable” are not synonymous in mission-critical applications, as designers often need embedded systems to function at different levels of “safe” while remaining consistently reliable.
MEN Mikro Elektronik is coming up with another two mezzanine cards with FPGA functionality. The two FPGA based modules introduced one year ago – the P599 PMC and M199 M-Module™ – are now getting company by a conduction-cooled PMC, P598, and an XMC module, P699. The USM™ Universal Submodule concept that this I/O family is built on implements the desired functionality as IP cores inside the FPGA of the mezzanine card, while the line drivers are located on a submodule.
MEN Mikro Elektronik was introducing a new 6U VMEbus single-board computer at SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2007 in Nuremberg. The A17 is built around Freescale's new MPC8548 with clock frequencies of up to 1.5 GHz. Due to the 2eSST protocol the board reaches a data transfer rate of up to 320 MB/s. Long-term availability until at least 2017 and RoHS conformity guarantee that the user’s project is future-safe.
