What is a Pico-ITX Motherboard?
A Pico ITX is a motherboard form factor that possesses a 100 X 72mm (~3.9″ x 1.8″) footprint and is already a widely adopted form factor for embedded computing solutions.
Where are Pico ITX motherboards typically deployed?
- Pico ITX motherboards are ideal for hand held or portable applications where overall product footprint is key.
- In particular, where battery operated devices are used – where consideration needs to be provided not just to product size – but overall power conservation for longevity of battery life. There are already a variety of Pico ITX solutions that utilise low powered X86 processor solutions to provide advantages around this consideration.
- There are also Pico ITX solutions available where both footprint and high powered computing power are the main priorities.
Pico ITX solutions: the benefits they can bring
Embedded system designers rely on the rich features that Pico ITX motherboards can provide when designing both consumer and industrial solutions where it’s imperative the designer doesn’t compromise on a products aesthetics, feel – or functionality.
Pico ITX solutions may be small but this embedded format is truly independent as it still generally negates the need for the use of additional peripheral boards – given the wide number and combination of features that can be obtained around I/O.
