The TimeSys Linux RTOS SDK is the first Linux product available for the C100 VMEbus single- board computer, providing engineers with a royalty- free, open source Linux option for product development and deployment.
To this end several methods of communicating with VXIbus devices were defined, enabling VXIbus solutions to be integrated with VMEbus, GPIB or as stand-alone portable solutions.
Designed for high-availability real-time applications, the 7000 series is qualified for use with host adapters from several vendors for standard platforms such as PCI, SGI, Sun and VMEbus. Other features include disk options of 9, 18, 36 or 73Gb capacities - up to 587Gb in a single enclosure, online hot-swap replacement of disk drives and a guarantee of no data loss or performance degradation in the event of a drive failure.
