Versa Module Europa

(hardware)
(VME) A flexible open-ended bus system which makes use of the Eurocard standard.

VME was introduced in 1981 by Motorola, Philips, Thompson, and Mostek. It was intended to be a flexible environment supporting a variety of computing intensive tasks, and has become a rather popular protocol in the computer industry. It is defined by the IEEE standard 1014-1987.

On the one hand, introductory level physics classes require basic single probe detectors and readout systems such as accelerometers or barometers and on the other hand, national laboratories use elaborate arrays of detectors and sophisticated complex DAQ systems such as CAMAC (Computer Automated Measurement And Control), FASTBUS, and VME (Versa Module Europa).
A VME (Versa Module Europa) tuner capability will also be developed to replace the current ALR-81 tuners.
