ABSTRACT
Discusses the use of off-the-shelf PC/104 and PC/104+imaging boards for embedded systems. Benefits of the release of the PC/104 specification in March 1992; Reason cited by Daniel DeConick, senior engineer at PixelSmart on why other developers abandon the PC/104; Description of the PC/104 and PC/104+ based products produced by PixelSmart and other vendors.
