Small, but perfectly formed!

Flexibility drives mini-ITX growth in embedded applications. By Christof Wehner.

The saying ‘less is more’ sums up why many embedded designers are using mini-ITX boards in space constrained systems. Delivering flexibility and long life support, these boards are allowing system developers to take advantage of expansion, graphics and cpu options.
Measuring 170 x 170mm, mini-ITX boards are 38% the size of the mainstream ATX boards. Designers achieve this density by focusing on thermal management and the careful selection and placement of components.
Mini-ITX adoption is growing in many embedded market segments, benefiting from a pc ecosystem that provides a choice of hardware and software vendors.
