VMEbus (Versa Module Europa bus) is a computer bus standard, used
in industrial, commercial, and military applications worldwide.
VMEbus systems withstand shock, vibration, and extended temperatures, making them ideal for harsh environments and ideal for use in traffic control systems, weapons control systems, telecommunication switching systems, data acquisition, video imaging, and robots.

The recent VME64 standard defines the mechanical specifications such as board dimensions, connector specifications, and enclosure characteristics, as well as the electronic specifications for sub-bus structures, signal functions, timing, signal voltage levels, and master/slave configurations.
VME64 standard specifies a 64-bit data path for 6U cards and a 32-bit data path for 3U cards, and the VME64x adds a 'hot-swap' extension.
