Data Sheet: VME SBCs for Tech Refresh for April COTS Journal.}
Editor’s Notes:
1. This section’s name was Technology Focus, and now it is called “Data Sheet”.
2. Product entries here are in a more bullet-point kind of format rather than in paragraphs.
4. The header for the page should be “Data Sheet: VME SBCs for Tech Refresh”
5. The general style we’ve been using for these Data Sheet Roundups, 1 product per column (3
per page) still applies. There’s 12 products, so that’s 4 pages.
6. All images are on COTS Admin site
7. At bottom of each page or at least once per spread, put “See online version of this Roundup
for links to complete product data sheets.”
