of the most extensive I/O lines in the embedded board industry, we have
a vast selection of Ethernet switches and LAN and WAN cards. Our range
of other I/O interfaces includes packet processors, audio, video, storage,
IndustryPack®, bus adapters, PCI Express®, Fibre Channel, StarFabric
and InfiniBand® Technology. Our huge collection of PMC cards is supplemented
by a leading group of AdvancedMC™ cards for MicroTCA™ and
single board computers can be used to provide specialized processing
and I/O capabilities, they are not the only solution. For certain
types of applications, a bus adapter is a viable alternative, and
may even be the best choice. In cases where a bus adapter can replace
of a single board computer, it has a lower total system cost, allows
for easier upgrades and migrations to different platforms, enhances
performance and shortens development time and time to market.
are many situations where you might need a few extra slots in a
system, and our bus expansion products give you that extra flexibility.
Whether it’s VME, PCI or PCI Express™, we offer a simple
solution to a number of vexing design challenges such as the transition
to serial fabrics. As these new standards gain momentum, our bus
expansion products may allow you to migrate to the new technology
without having to abandon your existing investments.
whole idea behind open, modular computing is to allow for the painless
insertion of technology into almost any system design. Carrier
cards are an excellent example of this concept, because they allow
the designer to expand system capabilities by way of a card that “carries” another
module into the system. After decades of experience in the embedded
computing business, we have developed an extremely wide range of
proven, reliable carriers that give the system designer a great
selection to choose from.
convergence of traditional telecom networks with computer networks
continues to accelerate. As a result, there is continuing demand
for high bandwidth and high availability products to connect that
two. GE have extensive experience delivering and supporting products
for the major network protocols.
speed networking is a critical part of most embedded applications
and we offer a strong group of Ethernet switches and network interfaces
designed to provide the necessary bandwidth. Our selection allows
you to rapidly incorporate Ethernet connections into CompactPCI®,
VMEbus, VPX, AdvancedTCA® and MicroTCA™ applications.
We also offer a range of ruggedization levels from air cooled to
conduction cooled models. Benefit from our experience with a broad
range of application types, ranging from high availability telecom
and networking applications to rugged industrial and military environments.
offer a range of input and output types designed to offer tremendous
flexibility to system architects. Our product range covers analog-to-digital
and digital-to-analog converters, digital I/O cards for special
function devices, highly versatile, DSP-based I/O products, IndustryPacks
(IPs) and transition modules and a wide range of multi-channel
serial interface boards for standard bus and expansion architectures
such as CompactPCI, VMEbus, IndustryPack, PC•MIP, and PMC.

is increasingly important for network administrators to control
network traffic in order to maintain both security and quality
of service. Packet processors provide secure, high-speed connectivity
and complex security processing at wire speed performance. With
our packet processors, you can quickly create applications such
as Network Address Translators, Session Border Controllers, Media
Gateways, Edge Routers, Firewall bricks and Video Services Switches
that meet the demands of security conscious network administrators.
Memory networks are Real Time Local Area Networks in which each
computer always has an up-to-date local copy of the shared memory
set. These specialty networks are specifically designed to provide
highly deterministic data communications. They deliver the tightly
timed performance necessary for a variety of distributed simulation
and industrial control applications. Reflective Memory networks
have benefited from advances in general-purpose data networks,
but they remain an entirely independent technology, driven by different
requirements and catering to applications where determinism, implementation
simplicity, and a lack of software overhead are key factors.
Intelligent Platforms have one of the industry’s widest and
most flexible collections of analog input and output boards for
radar, medical imaging, wireless communications, sonar and test
and measurement applications that is complemented by a range of
system-level capabilities including PCIe, XMC and VPX-based data
acquisition, processing and recording system solutions and signal
computing applications often require long or short term storage
of application data, and we provide for these needs with a full
range of memory and storage options. We offer hard disk storage
and Compact Flash/MicroDrive storage, including innovative PCMCIA
flash and rotary disk options in multiple form factors. Our SCSI
products allow you to add SCSI capabilities to a single board computer
or a system, and we continue to enhance our cards with features
that meet a range of requirements.
