Twin TIGERSHARC dual CMC carrier VME master-slave board

The SIS3150 was developed as dual CMC carrier with substantial on board computing power for data movement/processing. sis3150web

Applications comprise processing of data from SIS9300 ADC/digitizer cards and the SIS3150-USB VME to USB2.0 interface.

Custom CMC add on developments are available on request.

  • VME slave A32/D32/BLT32/MBLT64/2eVME
  • 64 MB SDRAM memory
  • 2 CMC sites
  • P2 access to lower CMC site

SIS3150-USB USB2.0 to VME interface

The SIS3150-USB is a high performance USB to VME interface. Connected to a USB2.0 port it supports block transfer speeds in excess of 30 MByte/s. USB1.1 operation is supported also. With the TigerSHARC DSP option it is perfectly suited for hard realtime applications.




  • VME master A16/A24/A32/A40 D8/D16/D32/BLT32/MBLT64
  • VME slave A32/D32/BLT32/MBLT64
  • 1 or 2 TS101 TIGERSHARC DSPs (as option)
  • 2 inputs/2outputs
  • 64 MB SDRAM memory (requires DSP option)
  • one available CMC site
  • P2 access to lower CMC site
  • block read speed in excess of 30 MBytes/s
  • 650 ns single cycle access with DSP option


Software Support:

  • Windows 2K/XP/Vista Driver
  • LINUX Driver
  • NI Labwindows and Visual C++ Code
  • Labview (Windows) VIs
  • Matlab (NRE Project Cost)
  • KineticaRT
  • SIS3150 Base Program:

    The screen shot below shows the SIS3150 base program which can be installed from the supplied distribution kit under Windows. The SIS3150 base GUI allows you to execute VME cycles without havin to write user code right away.
