The BVME3500 is a Single Board Computer optimised for communication and protocol switching and routing applications. It provides eleven asynchronous serial ports and a 10baseT ethernet port. It is ideally suited for custom network routing or concentrator applications, or embedded systems requiring many serial ports and industrial I/O. Controlled by a pair of 68360 CPUs in a master/slave configuration, the BVME3500 can take advantage of the wealth of software available for these very popular processors.
The standard double Eurocard form factor allows the BVME3500 to be installed in standard racking. The rear DIN41612 connectors are compatible with VMEbus signals taking its power form P1 and I/O via the P2 connector. This enables the BVME3500 to be installed in vacant VMEbus slots. Alternatively very compact desktop or wall mounting cases are available.
