+ - Moore's Law Comes to PCI Express Expansion Cards->

Submitted by DeviceGuru
DeviceGuru (1136715) writes "A group of companies today unveiled — and demonstrated products based on — a tiny new PCI Express expansion standard, according to an article at LinuxDevices. Although it's somewhat larger than the PCI Express Mini Card, the tiny new 43mm x 65mm FeaturePak card's high density 230-pin edgecard connector provides twice the number of PCI Express and USB 2.0 channels to the host computer, plus 100 lines dedicated to general purpose I/O, of which 34 signal pairs are implemented with enhanced isolation for use in applications such as gigabit Ethernet or high-precision analog I/O. While FeaturePaks will certainly be used in all sorts of embedded devices (medical instruments, test equipment, etc.), the tiny cards could also be used for developing configurable consumer devices, for example to add an embedded firewall/router of security processor to a laptop or notebook computers, or for modular functionality in TV set-top-boxes and Internet edge devices."
