PICMG Launches Latest Overview

A not-for-profit 501(c) consortium of companies and organizations developing open specifications, PICMG, releases an eight-page overview brochure that provides a quick overview of the organization's goals, achievements, specifications, and more.  PICMG open standards are used in a wide range of high performance industrial, military/aerospace, telecommunications, test/measurement, medical, and general purpose embedded computing applications.

 

The brochure illustrates the successes of PICMG-based architectures that include COM Express, CompactPCI Serial, CompactPCI, AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA, Hardware Platform Management, and PICMG 1.3 SHB.  It also describes new concepts for Industrial IoT and in-process specifications such as CompactPCI Serial for Space.  In addition, there is a chart on the target markets of the specifications, a "Why Join PICMG" section, a topic on Components, and more.
