The place for PC/104 products

What better place than PC/104 and Small Form Factors magazine’s annual Buyer’s Guide to promote the best place to find PC/104 technology products? The PC/104 Embedded Consortium’s website at www.pc104.org has been experiencing a flurry of activity since the introduction of the PCI/104-Express specification and the website’s revamped product section.

The website is a portal to the expansive, unified PC/104 community. This website provides users with official up-to-date specifications and opportunities to develop first-order solutions to their requirements. All levels of the embedded community can now benefit from this easy-to-use resource.

Members can directly update product offering information. Component manufacturers can list products that target the PC/104 industry. Board-level manufacturers can obtain information on current specifications and see which components are being targeted for the long term. OEMs and end users looking for processors, data acquisition, industrial I/O, avionics interfaces, human machine interfaces, communications modules, mass storage, power supplies, enclosures, and software products and manufacturers based on the PC/104, EBX, and EPIC architectures are finding them here. It’s a one-stop resource for the embedded market at all levels. Hundreds of product listings spanning more than 50 main and subcategories have already been uploaded to the website.
