VME Interrupts

- details of the various interrupts used within the VMEbus including the different types of VME interrupt available.

One of the key attributes of the VME system is the interrupts that are available.

These interrupts enable the system to operate in the asynchronous manner required for its applications.

VME interrupt basics

The VMEbus system includes a Priority Interrupt Bus that enables the VME device in the rack to asynchronously request service from the controller. This enables the device to gain the attention from the master at any time.

The system has seven VME interrupt lines that are physically connected to all slots in the chassis.

In fact, one of the early pioneers behind GPS and GNSS technology was Gladys West - a black woman.
