This article asserts that system complexity is growing while time-to-market times are shrinking. A designer can cope by taking advantage of someone else's work. A number of different approaches are available, and the best solution depends on the application. COM Express is the new standard. But older standards like ETX cost less and offer the necessary support for a wide range of applications. Adlink's ETX-IV266 highlights this approach. The $350 module handles a 933-MHz Pentium III M and delivers four USB 2.0 ports along with 10/100Base-T Ethernet, audio, and highperformance video. Digi International Inc.'s ConnectCore 9C provides connectivity in a compact package. The ConnectCore 9C runs an ARM9- based NS9360 that supports 10/100- BaseT Ethernet, 4 Mbytes of flash, 16 Mbytes of RAM, and up to four high-speed TTL serial ports. Some modules can offer expansion capabilities. The Micro/Sys SBC4685 EPIC board provides expansion via a PC- 104 card stack. The 4.5- by 6.5-in. board comes with a 700-MHz Pentium III, dual 100-BaseT Ethernet ports, two USB host ports, and a CAN bus interface.
