In the embedded space, VME and cPCI have been used for years to build systems. Because of the performance limitations of these two busses, parallel switched interconnects such as SKYchannel and RACEway were created. These busses can't realistically go any faster. Today's serial interconnects such as InfiniBand provide performance increases and functionality enhancements not possible with a parallel interconnect, while simultaneously reducing cost.
