WinSystems Supports EPIC Express

9/19/2005 - WinSystems announced its support for EPIC Express. EPIC Express adds the high-bandwidth PCI Express to the Embedded Platform for Industrial Computing (EPIC) platform without changing the size of the base board or expansion modules.

"EPIC Express is the industry's first stacking PCI Express architecture," said Robert Burckle, Vice-President of WinSystems. "It replaces the PCI Bus connector with a stackable PCI Express connector which increases the bandwidth up to 16X while reducing the connector space requirements by two-thirds. A stacking architecture is ideal for keeping costs low while maintaining a rugged, self-aligned group of boards."

"PCI Express is the wave of the future for high performance I/O in both desktop and industrial/embedded applications," said Burckle. "EPIC Express is the logical evolution of the EPIC specification as it stacks PCI Express expansion capability onto this industrial computing platform. EPIC Express provides a bridge to the future while maintaining legacy support for the vast number of PC/104 expansion modules available worldwide. I am pleased at the spirit of cooperation of the five companies that defined EPIC Express as witnessed by the short time period required to define and launch this new embedded SBC standard."

WinSystems' designs and manufacturers PC/104, EPIC, EBX, and STD Bus boards for use by OEMs worldwide. We have served the industrial market for over 23 years.
