Product Launch

Extending VMEbus products beyond 2020


Concurrent Technologies Plc (AIM: CNC), a world leading specialist in the design and manufacture of high-end embedded computer products for critical applications in the defence, aerospace, telecommunications, transportation, scientific and industrial markets, is pleased to announce a further addition to its VME range of embedded processor boards.


The VP F1x/msd board incorporates a 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor together with additional I/O connectivity to enable a simple technology transition from previous generations of products. This latest addition to the Company’s range will be especially appealing for customers in the military, aerospace and government markets with very long life-cycle programs. This board uses the same tried and tested VME64 bridge device featured on the two previous VME boards announced this year by the Company, creating a portfolio of boards that should be available in the market beyond 2020.


Variants are also offered for dual-core based performance and power optimised solutions. Air cooled boards are available in Q4 2015 with rugged conduction cooled variants expected in 2016.


Glen Fawcett, CEO, Concurrent Technologies Plc, commented:

“Having now announced three new VME boards in 2015, we have demonstrated our commitment to support those VME customers needing long-life cycle boards based on Intel processors. We are continuing to enhance our portfolio with dependable products that can be deployed in a range of environmental conditions.  These are complimented with software and firmware packages to enhance security, speed up boot times and simplify integration.”
