Board level expansion is great for larger solutions but more compact, configurable designs demand smaller peripherals using form factors such as M.2 and Mini-PCIe. This panel will discuss the various challenges, standards, and solutions available to developers, as well as other computer-on-module solutions like SMARC and Raspberry Pi that are used to create small form factor (SFF) system solutions. This includes examining Modified COTS (MCOTS) subsystem integration services.
