Our CompactPCI® Serial Products
Custom solutions via CompactPCI industrial standard for modular computer systems.
As PCI bus technology has moved from a parallel interface to fast serial point-to-point interconnects, the popular and very successful parallel CompactPCI® specification PICMG 2.0 was significantly extended and enhanced by the newer CompactPCI® Serial standard, PICMG CPCI-S.0, in 2011. Both 3U and 6U sizes are specified, as is convection and conduction cooling. This versatility combined with the wide availability of chips, hardware, and software created for the commercial market makes CompactPCI® Serial the fastest, most versatile, lowest cost modular high performance open standard for embedded computing on the market today.

Benefits of CompactPCI®
- 3U and 6U Eurocard form factors are defined utilizing the popular IEEE 1101.1 and IEEE 1101.10 mechanical standards providing implementation flexibility and widely available off-the-shelf parts.
- Supports Hot Swap of boards while a system is operating. This enables mission critical systems.
- Convection cooled and conduction cooled modules are defined.
- Thousands of compliant products are commercially available, including processors, I/O cards, backplanes, card cages, system enclosures, and complete pre-packaged systems.
- Wide O/S support
- Scalable from a single board to large systems
- CompactPCI® Serial migrates parallel PCI bus to serial PCI Express, SATA, Ethernet, and USB, offering higher performance while maintaining backwards compatibility.
CompactPCI® is most widely used in
- Industrial control,
- Computer telephony integration,
- Data acquisition,
and other general purpose embedded computing.
