Five I/O and communication function module slots—
A variety of modules to choose from
NAI’s 64E3 is a 6U VME High-density I/O and Communication Board with five function module slots that can be configured with a variety of I/O, communication, and Ethernet functions. One of these module slots is standardized with a relatively large footprint and high-density channel count, enabling up to 48 channels of high functionality, feature-rich, programmable discrete on a single 6U board. Using multiple DSPs, the enhanced motherboard enables higher processing power and dedicated pre-processing control for each module.

By eliminating the need for multiple, specialized, single-function boards, this unique design increases packaging density, saves enclosure slots, and reduces power consumption. The 64E3, a low-power/high-performance board, is ideally suited for rugged defense, industrial, and commercial applications.

In a VME chassis, the 64E3 acquires sensor measurement data and controls simulation signals, and makes this information available to an external host processor via Gigabit Ethernet (Gig-E) or PCIe. Pre-existing, fully-tested functions can be quickly and easily combined in an unlimited number of ways. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the system Single Board Computer (SBC) from unnecessary data management overhead.
