Embedded Systems Conference, San Jose, CA. - The company has published the complete specification and design guidelines for the nano computer-on-module format, designed as an extension to the COM Express (COM.0) specification published by the PICMG to include credit-card-sized modules. The nano module format, measuring 84 mm by 55 mm, is an extension to the PICMG COM Express specification that currently specifies the Basic (95-mm by 125-mm) and Extended (155-mm by110-mm) form factors. The nano module follows exactly the COM Express pin-out Type 1 with respect to connector location and pin definition. Therefore, different size modules are interchangeable and carrier-board designs are reusable. Additionally, the nano form factor defines all long-term relevant interfaces such as Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, USB, and PCI Express (including PCIe Gen 2), as well as audio and graphics.
