Abstract:

The System Engineer's Handbook, written by the developer of the VME bus system and some of the most knowledgeable experts in the computer industry, is the most comprehensive guide available for the VME bus standard. It is the system engineer's guide to building high performance multiprocessor systems. This book contains complete copies of VME bus and VXI bus specifications and applications information, enabling a system engineer to purchase state-of-the-art board components from specialized manufacturers and assemble them into a fully-functional system.
