Posted 30 Mar 2004 at 20:08 UTC by steve Share This

A LinuxDevices.com article carries the news that five manufacturers of single-board computers (SBCs) announced a new industry standard form factor called EPIC at this year's Embedded Systems Conference. EPIC boards will be 115mm by 165mm which is larger than PC/104 but smaller than the EBX standard. The EPIC standard includes on-board PC/104 and PC/104-Plus connectors for expansion boards. The standard also allows PC-style connectors for I/O instead of the pin-headers common on PC/104 designs.
