Full-size PICMG 1.3

Full-size PICMG 1.3

Standard PICMG 1.3 SBCs have several advantages over non-standard SBCs. Firstly, they are more maintainable than a motherboard system and have a much lower mean time to repair (MTTR). Secondly, it is easy to upgrade to a newer or faster processor if desired.

Features of PICMG 1.3:
  • 20 PCI Express
    20 PCI Express lanes are supported, including PCI Express x16, x8, x4 and x1 configurations

  • ATX power signals are supported
    Provides AUX voltages for standby power and sleep states (soft starts, wake on LAN), supports PSON#, PWRGD, PWRRBT# and ACPI states
