VME SKYChannel

The backbone of SKY Computers' VME solutions is the 64-bit ANSI/VITA standard SKYchannel architecture. With system performance of up to 1 GB/sec, its point-to-point communication enables the interconnect fabric to grow as processing requirements increase. SKYchannel is the interconnect for the SKYbolt® family and new Thunderbolt™ family of high performance embedded computers. It eliminates architectural problems of latency, blocking and data transfer delays. SKY's entire VME line of products employs the advanced SKYvec® software development environment that simplifies complex multiprocessor programming and ensures investment protection.

The Thunderbolt™ family of VME boards and systems delivers unprecedented levels of scalability, reliability and price/performance for demanding applications. Advanced field-tested technologies make the Thunderbolt more tolerant of higher levels of vibration and heat.

The Thunderbolt family delivers optimal computing performance using the 500 MHz PowerPC MPC7410 microprocessor and the ANSI/VITA standard SKYchannel interconnect fabric. The 6U Thunderbolt V-600 is configured with one Compute Module of four MPC7410's and one optional I/O Module. The 9U Thunderbolt V-900 can be configured with up to four Compute Modules of four MPC7410's for a total of 16 processors.

The SKYbolt 6U and SKYbolt 9U systems provide proven high performance with an easy migration path for rugged systems. Based on the SKYchannel interconnect, developers can begin with commercial grade SKYbolt 6U systems and migrate to Xtreme™ rugged systems.
