Use VMEbus Offload to Split Data Plane from the Control Plane

The RIO6-8093 is a 6U VME single board computer for air-cooled ground applications. It provides a PCI connection over the VME-P0 connector enabling VMEbus offload operations. FlexIO™ is placed between the different I/O sources and the backplane connector. Combined with the onboard FPGA-based PCIe® to VME bridge, FlexIO makes the RIO6-8093 an ideal upgrade solution to legacy ground applications.
