With a history spanning 30 years and encompassing all phases of
the design and manufacture of Single Board Computers, GMS has established itself
as an innovator in embedded system technology. With open-standard expertise in
SBCs for VMEbus (VME), CompactPCI (CPCI) bus and custom form factors, GMS has
positioned itself on the cutting edge with introductions in mezzanine boards,
CPU carriers and, most recently, conduction-cooled products. While the company
supplies an extensive line of standard SBCs, the focus is on custom and
semi-custom products. With client service paramount, GMS acts as an extension of
the customer's engineering department then follows through by bringing
value to all phases of a project, from development to production and field
support. Based on its extensive experience in the industry, GMS's reputation is
one for delivering the highest performance at the lowest possible cost, while
maintaining highest-quality standards.
- editor's comments:- March 2009 - GMS offers flash SSDs in cPCI,
PMC and VME form factors to support its families of rugged SBCs. The SSD
products are conversion modules which house standard COTS
2.5" SSDs (for
example) rather than proprietary SSD designs.
In the early
1990s - GMS was listed in another publication of mine - called the
SPARC Product Directory.
In those days GMS manufactured 6U VMEbus compatible SPARC SBCs using (at
various times) microSPARC, TurboSPARC or SuperSPARC processors. These SPARC SBCs
ran either Solaris or Wind-River's VxWorks
