VME COM Express Carrier

This customer approached Diamond Point with a requirement for a replacement board for their obsolete VME single-board computer

The customer had a number of key requirements:

  • Have same backplane I/O as existing VME card
  • Same front panel as existing VME card
  • Use an up to date computing module

A COM Express solution was chosen and a PCB design was created to the board compatible with the existing VME card. Some of the VME board's I/O was achievable via the standard I/O of the COM Express module but some had to be realised through some custom circuitry (serial I/O controller and an FPGA)


  • Customer-specific connectors.
