GE Intelligent Platforms announced that it has signed an agreement that will see National Instruments distribute the GE cPCI-5565PIO Reflective Memory PMC and PMC Carrier Card for 3U CompactPCI systems. The cPCI-5565PIO – which operates at 2Gbaud and features 256Mbytes of memory and multi-mode transceivers – is based on the GE PMC-5565PIORC, but includes a customized carrier card specifically designed to be configured with NI PXI chassis as part of the company's NI VeriStand real-time testing and simulation software platform.
According to Wayne McGee, Manager, Commercial Product Management at GE Intelligent Platforms, Reflective Memory is a technology that enables real time local area networks, in which each computer always has an up-to-date local copy of the shared memory set. These specialty networks are designed to provide deterministic data communications, and deliver the timed performance necessary for a variety of demanding distributed simulation and industrial control applications.
GE Reflective Memory solutions include nodes for VME, PCI and PCI Express systems as well as in a PMC form factor, together with a Reflective Memory Hub that allows for optimum management of Reflective Memory networks.
