Starter Cages

Starter cages or starter kits are preconfigured enclosures designed for development purposes. Based on the required system controller architecture (Intel or Power Architecture) and bus system (OpenVPX, VME, or CPCI), GE Intelligent Platforms can provide the appropriate development system for your specific needs. Please note that these starter cages are only sold in conjunction with our single board computers. Contact our sales team for details.
