Matthias Huber Elected as Vice President of the PC/104 Consortium
Top priority: PCI Express
Two of the Consortium's top priorities for Europe include increased awareness for the PC/104 and EPIC standards. Apart from public relations work, Huber also will turn his attention to the Consortium's top priorities for the upcoming term to incorporate PCI Express into the group's PC/104, EBX, and EPIC embedded computer form factor specifications. The effort to develop a PCI Express-enabled version of PC/104 was announced in July of 2006 . The third goal that Huber will pursue is the promotion of the Consortium's Products Directory, a huge PC/104 online database containing several hundred I/O modules, CPU boards and other PC/104 solutions: http://www.pc104.org/...
The PC/104 Consortium and standard were established in 1992. In use since 1987, PC/104 is a small form factor, embedded PC physical and electrical interface standard. It provides embedded system designers with an architecture that is dense, cost-effective and based on proven, practical technology. PC/104-Plus, an extension that was added to the standard in 1995, incorporates PCI technology. Longevity is one of the hallmarks of the PC/104 technology. Because customers require stable, long-term supply, PC/104 module vendors typically offer products that do not change specifications as fast as commercial PC vendors. The proven reliability of PC/104 is valued by thousands of OEMs in application areas such as industrial control and instrumentation, military and aerospace, and medical.
