Designers must understand and weigh the benefits of each bus type. New form factors are constantly being created, and ACCES will continue to develop products across the many bus types to target virtually every application
With its rugged and space-saving features, Pico-I/O is well-positioned to help embedded I/O catch up with continuously shrinking embedded computers. As the ecosystem for this standard grows, innovative data acquisition and control systems utilizing Pico-I/O will foster many new applications serving the embedded market.
As PC-based computers move away from the PCI/ISA bus for I/O cards, the USB interface can provide more than just a substitute for traditional plug-in boards.
With USB so prevalent and PC/104 so popular, why not put the two together? Combining the form factor of PC/104 with the fast interconnect capability of USB creates the new USB/104 form factor.
