The 406-1 PC/AT to VME bus adapter connects a PC/AT to a VMEbus system for fast, cost-effective sharing of memory and special purpose boards. The adapter provides high-speed data transfers, and requires minimal software support. Interconnected at the physical layer, the two buses can share memory; the memory appears to and is treated by each system as if it were its own.
