Motorola to Support MicroTCA and VMEbus Gear

Motorola announced plans to support bptj MicroTCA-based communications servers and VMEbus- based products. This coexistence strategy is designed to help equipment manufacturers and system integrators bring new communications capabilities to the embedded market quickly while preserving the rich set of real-time I/O capabilities of VMEbus.

Developed initially for the telecommunications industry, MicroTCA meets evolving communications requirements and shares many of the same characteristics, such as small physical size, scalability and low entry cost, that made VMEbus successful in the embedded market. For these reasons, Motorola is developing MicroTCA-based solutions that will coexist with its VMEbus product lines.
