Alimar also offers a
mixed OEM VME
repair program. Boards that are deemed defective for a variety of
reasons can be tested and troubleshoot on a per board, or contract
basis. Currently we have had a 90% success rate in repairing various
VME boards including the Interphase 5211 FDDI card,
Basic fees do apply to the process:
Generally a 'bench fee' is charged
regardless of the work performed. If the board is un-repairable you are
only charged the bench fee. If the board is indeed repairable the bench
fee is waived and you will be charged according to the work that has
There are certain boards that do have
a set price. We have a 'mean price' policy and each client knows prior to worked being performed what their cost is going to be.
There are no hidden charges, as we strive to have a transparent process.
The diagnostic process generally takes
24-48 hours to complete. Basic repairs with in-house parts are returned
in 1-2 weeks after receipt of the product. Parts that we do not have in
stock come from AS5553 compliant sources, and these repairs can take
between 3-4 weeks depending on complexity. Our VME repair staff take
great pride in the efficiency and try to have most parts available in
All service components are
purchased under a Lockheed Martin reviewed AS5553 Counterfeit Avoidance
& Detection plan. As a critical parts supplier to Lockheed Martin, we
are certified as AS5553 compliant for spare parts and repair services.
This affirms that all components are purchased through reputable,
stringently monitored sources.
We have on occasion had to rework
boards that had been 'repaired' by others and the people who perform our
repairs take great personal pride in their abilities, which enable us to
return boards in a equivalent to new condition.
Such repairs a conducted in a clean
room environment with the highest standards of ESD protection available.

Motorola's line of VMEbus
products using PowerPC® architecture-compatible processors
expands the boundaries for functionality and performance in the
VMEbus market. What differentiates this product family is our
PowerPlus Architecture. Based on in-house application specific
integrated circuits (ASICs) designed for exclusive use in our
products, our boards offer unprecedented levels of system
performance. This is accomplished by addressing three critical
areas: optimizing processor and cache performance, minimizing
memory bottlenecks and optimizing system I/O throughput.
