As a first step, the backplane and system specialists have made available diverse components. In cooperation with Scan Engineering Telecom (SET), these include, for example, MCH, processor, storage, graphic, I/O and submodule AMCs. Advanced Mezzanine Cards from other manufacturers can also be supplied. The second step, ELMA’s preconfigured “integrated basic system”, will soon follow. This service will be offered for all four models in the blue series (blu!box, blu!cube, blu!eco and blu!smart). The modules described above are already integrated according to customers needs in the basic systems that have been checked and are thus ready for immediate operation. All the customer needs to do is insert his own system cards and upload the specific software, leaving plenty of time to concentrate on his core competency. All good things come in threes: The third stage in the process is the extension of the “Integrated Products” range to include the VME and CompactPCI based products and systems.
