GE Intelligent Platforms PCIE-5565PIORC Reflective Memory Node Card

GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the PCIE-5565PIORC low profile PCI Express reflective memory node card. A reflective memory network is a type of shared memory system that enables multiple, separate computers to share a common set of data. Reflective memory autonomously replicates the contents of one processor’s memory to the memory nodes of all other network members. The PCIE-5565PIORC board is ideal for real-time applications like simulation and training, industrial process control and data streaming and acquisition.
