As one of the companies that invented the VMEbus, SMART EC has consistently worked to enhance VMEbus technology and now offers arguably the widest range of VME (MVME) single board computers (SBC) based on NXP (was Freescale, was Motorola) processors using the Power Architecture. Our embedded computing group emerges from legacy acquisitions of some of the leaders in the embedded computing industry including Force Computers, Heurikon Computers, and the Motorola Computer Group (MCG). As one of the founders of the VME architecture and the VME International Trade Association (VITA) decades ago, we have developed unmatchable expertise in the design of industry-leading VME products and have been a long-standing, trusted supplier for highly demanding applications.
