Qseven - Computer-On-Module Standard

The Qseven concept is an off-the-shelf, multi vendor, Computer-On-Module that integrates all the core components of a common PC and is mounted onto an application specific carrier board. Qseven modules have a standardized form factor of 70mm x 70mm and have specified pinouts based on the high speed MXM system connector that has a standardized pinout regardless of the vendor.

These functions include, but are not limited to, graphics, sound, mass storage, network and multiple USB ports. A single ruggedized MXM connector provides the carrier board interface to carry all the I/O signals to and from the Qseven module. This MXM connector is a well known and proven high speed signal interface connector that is commonly used for high speed PCI Express graphics cards in notebooks.

Qseven offers the newest I/O technologies on this minimum size form factor. Some are .. PCIexpress, USB 2. Serial ATA, Secure Digital I/O interface. Gigabit Ethernet

    Since the Qseven form factor was introduced; many manufacturers of boards and software have adopted it. The combination of Qseven and RISC gains more and more importance. The reason is the compatibility of the offered boards, as well as the small form factor (70x70mm) with an inexpensive plug connector

    PICMG - Open specifications for Modular Computing

    PICMG is a consortium of companies who collaboratively develop open specifications for high performance telecommunications and industrial computing applications.

    PICMG - Open specifications for Modular Computing

    Founded in 1994, PICMG’s original mission was to extend the PCI standard to non-desktop applications. The formal name of the organization is the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group. It is now known as PICMG (pronounced “PICK-EM-GEE” or “PICK-MIG”).

    Specs and Standards for Advanced Mezzanine Card, AdvancedTCA, COM Express, CompactPCI, e-PCI-X, MicroTCA and others.

    PICMG 3.7 AdvancedTCA

    To better address the datacenter market PICMIG has developed thePICMG 3.7 AdvancedTCA specification, as an extension to the existing ATCA standard. The extension utilizes the available depth in server cabinets and the environmental characteristics of datacenters to dramatically increase the power and throughput, while reducing the cost of the systems.

    PCI-ISA - Passive Backplanes - "The PCI-ISA passive backplane standard moves all of the components normally located on the motherboard to a single plug-in card. Looking much like a standard ISA or PCI card, a PCI-ISA CPU card has two edge connectors on it - one for the PCI bus and one for the ISA bus. The "motherboard" is replaced with a simple "passive backplane" that has only connectors soldered to it."
