Currently, the EMP software is installed on an IBM Netvista X41 workstation running Windows XP.  The system is designed as a complete, integrated package.

This is an EMP:





It is a hardware and software system for mass-programming PCMCIA memory cards.  We are going to spin an official release once we are sure McKinney is ready to build the things.


As to “is it certified”, the answer is no.  My hope is that it won’t require certification.  It doesn’t count anything.  But I might be dreaming.  You’d have to ask Don.


For what it is worth, that was a poorly worded readme entry in the 4.3.10 release.  The EMP is not part of ballot station proper.  It is a standalone Windows NT application.  There aren’t any user-visible changes in BS 4.3.10 that have anything to do with EMP, introduced bugs notwithstanding.
