Emerson Network Power Unveils Its Fastest Single-Core, VMEbus Processing Blade

Latest backward-compatible addition validates ongoing commitment to existing and future VME technologies.

TEMPE, Ariz [November 17, 2008] – Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity, today announced the MVME4100, its fastest single-core, next-generation VMEbus processing blade. The MVME4100 joins the recently announced MVME7100 – Emerson Network Power’s highest performance VMEbus single-board computer – as the newest additions to a long line of leading-edge VME technology developed for industrial, medical and defense/aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Featuring a 1.3 GHz processor and a host of best-in-class I/O options, the MVME4100 solidifies Emerson Network Power’s unwavering commitment to the VME market by enhancing the existing PowerPC technology roadmap and providing a number of migration options for legacy VME products. Specifically designed to allow users to bolster performance and features for competitive advantage, Emerson’s VMEbus computing blades also provide backwards compatibility to protect their investment in existing VMEbus technologies.

“As the pioneers of VME technology, we are committed to our long-standing and widely-respected VME legacy and remain heavily invested in the development of new and cutting-edge VMEbus technologies,” said Jorge Magalhaes, vice president of marketing for the Embedded Computing business of Emerson Network Power. “In addition to demonstrating our steadfast commitment to offering a growing portfolio of feature-rich, cost-competitive products, the MVME4100 is further proof that Emerson Network Power is dedicated to extending product lifecycles and preserving the use of the VME infrastructure for years to come.”

Equipped with expanded processing power for I/O and data-intensive applications, the MVME4100’s 8548E system-on-chip PowerPC processor features a double-precision embedded scalar and vector floating-point APU that delivers next-generation, floating-point processing performance for today’s demanding high-precision applications. The processor’s best-in-class supplementary encryption engine also allows users to address the industry’s ever-growing demands for network privacy and security.

The MVME4100 also leads the industry in storage innovation with a range of storage capabilities including 4GB of fully-programmable NAND Flash memory, 2GB of on-board DDR2 SDRAM and 512KB of cutting-edge, non-volatile MVRAM memory. The blade’s I/O capabilities include advanced 2eSSR protocol availability capable of bandwidth up to 320 MB/s, 4 GigE ports, 3 serial ports, USB 2.0 compatibility and PCI-E expansion options for maximum performance and flexibility. In addition, the board’s I/O and firmware are fully backward-compatible with existing MVME3100 & 7100 models to ensure easy interoperability with legacy hardware.
