Lawrenceville, Georgia, Tuesday, August 18, 2020 – Trenton Systems, a manufacturer of rugged servers, workstations, blade servers, storage systems, mini PCs, processor boards, and PCIe backplanes, announced its membership with the VMEbus International Trade Association (VITA) on Tuesday, becoming one of the organization’s newest members and joining the affiliative ranks of other participating computer hardware manufacturers.
VITA, founded in the early 1980s and known for the promotion and maintenance of the VMEbus technology standard and others, is a non-profit organization of vendors and users who have a common market interest in real-time, modular embedded computing systems. Accredited as an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) developer, VITA provides its members with the ability to develop, promote, and access open technology standards used as a basis for critical embedding computing architectures around the world.
“It is more important than ever to become involved with setting the next generation of standards for critical embedded systems technologies,” said Sean Campbell, Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Business Development at Trenton Systems. “Trenton has a solid history of building a strong culture of standardization and open architectures.”
With more than 100 working groups encompassing 129 members, VITA has developed several leading computer bus, board, and system standards since its inception, including VMEbus, VXS, VPX, PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC), XMC, FMC, VITA 73 Small Form Factor, VITA 74 Nano Small Form Factor, and VITA 75 Rugged Small Form Factor. To avoid costs associated with vendor lock-in, as well as accelerate system development, integration, and implementation, the medical, defense, and aerospace industries, among others, rely on embedded computing systems that incorporate VITA’s open standards and technologies.
Today’s computing system designers face systemic challenges associated with closed system architectures, vendor-locked components, and proprietary system standards, making embedded computing design a more costly endeavor and creating a less-than-ideal time-to-market itinerary, especially considering the criticality and infrastructural importance of the computer systems in question. Trenton Systems recognizes these design challenges and is proud to further cement its support for system interoperability, security, and reliability through its newly attained membership with VITA.
