COM Express™ Module
COM Express™ was defined by the PICMG® (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group) as an open specification without hidden hooks. New module formats have been adopted recently.
Qseven™ has in recent years become the most widely adopted new standard for small form factor modules, specifically targeted towards applications that demand low power consumption.
SMARC ("Smart Mobility ARChitecture") is a versatile small form factor computer module definition targeting applications that require low power, low costs, and high performance.
ETX® will continue to be the platform of choice for systems requiring CPUs with low power dissipation and support for legacy interfaces such as the ISA bus, PS/2, LPT or COM1/COM2.
The nanoRISC® module standard has been created for applications requiring a small form factor and lowest power consumption. These modules can be used as a processing supercomponent, while users only need to add application-specific periphery.
