This connector had pins on a 0.1" pitch, and although the connector dimensions were given in metric format, it was not until the proposal for a new connector for a standard under consideration (the ill-fated Futurebus+
) that there was a move to go truly metric to the so-called hard metric standards.
These devices are designed for medium-slot, medium- and heavily-loaded backplanes, fully support live insertion and can increase data backplane throughput by 100% to 300% over traditional logic, such as ABT, FCT, LVT, ALVT, LVC and FutureBus+
according to the company.
Applications of the symbolic model checking method have been limited in the literature to the verification of the snooping protocols of the Gigamax [McMillan and Schwalbe 1991] and of the Futurebus+ [Clarke et al.
[1993b] the results of applying the SMV to the verification of the Futurebus+ protocols are given.
The initial backplanes used will be IEEE 1014 Versa Module Eurocard bus (VMEbus) with growth projected to Futurebus+ (IEEE 896).
Moreover, VITA is committed to Futurebus+ as an IEEE Computer Society standard for the next-generation computer backplane.
