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

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

PCI-ISA - Passive Backplanes

(Study this page first to understand how computers became more maintanable and expandable - delabs)

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."

AT8050 - AdvancedTCA Processor Boards

COM Express, a computer-on-module (COM) form factor, is a highly integrated and compact PC that can be used in a design application much like an integrated circuit component. Each COM Express Module COM integrates core CPU and memory functionality, the common I/O of a PC/AT, USB, audio, graphics, and Ethernet. All I/O signals are mapped to two high density, low profile connectors on the bottom side of the module.

Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA or AdvancedTCA) is the largest specification effort in the history of the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG), with more than 100 companies participating. Known as AdvancedTCA, the official specification designation is PICMG 3.x (see below). AdvancedTCA is targeted to requirements for the next generation of "carrier grade" communications equipment.
