The Top Manufacturers Represented by JRED Associates



With 40+ years in the embedded computing market, General Micro Systems (GMS) is the longest-standing supplier of embedded computers in the world. Since its inception, GMS has stood true to its mission: “To Become the World’s Leading Technology Independent Supplier of Computing Engines, while Providing the Best Price/Performance, Quality and Customer Support, Demanded by Our Current and Our Future Customers.”

To be technology independent, GMS has an operational model that requires utilization of the best CPU technology available from any supplier in the market. Unlike most other computer manufactures, GMS does not make commitments to a given processor company. Since 1979, GMS has deployed over 40 different CPU technologies, from the very first Intel® 4004/8008 microprocessor, to the Rockwell® PPS-4/8, Rockwell/MOS Technology® 6502, Zilog® Z80, Motorola® 6800/6810/6820/6830/6840/6860, Sun Microsystems SPARC®, Motorola Power PC® and currently the Atom™, Core™ i7 and Xeon® processors from Intel®.

Once the processor technology is selected, the challenge is to maximize the computing engine’s performance while achieving the lowest cost available in the market. For over 30 years GMS has been the price/performance champions of the industry. General Micro Systems has broken nearly every price barrier established by the “big boys” and has demonstrated that a quality product can be produced in the USA at an affordable price without cutting corners, and with outstanding customer support.

Not only has GMS demonstrated superiority in hardware design, but also in software support. GMS software engineers are experts in a wide variety of languages and operating systems, as well as experts in software development for embedded microprocessors and microcontrollers and system BIOS development. For over three and a half decades, GMS systems have included support for over 30 operating systems and associated custom drivers, including the unique VME/IP, which provides TCP/IP over VME to eliminate the “endian issue” and real-time asynchronous multi-processing (RAMP), which allows several processors in a VME card cage to work simultaneously on a single task. Today, GMS' products support all of the major operating systems, such as Windows®, Linux® and VMware®. In addition, the system BIOS for all GMS' products are generated and maintained in-house, as are all Linux®, Windows®,and VMware® board support packages (BSP), thus providing consistency and uniformity across all platforms.
