Axiomtek Small Module Application Note
IIOT

The rapid growth of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is leading to a growing demand for embedded solutions with rich I/O interfaces and wireless connectivity options for application development. Axiomtek has developed an array of expansion I/O modules with rich and customizable I/O options to fulfill its customer’s application requirements. These I/O modules are compatible with Axiomtek’s single board computers (SBCs), embedded board, and system integrators can choose different SBCs and modules based on different applications and performance requirements. Axiomtek also offers high quality, innovative and quick design-in services to help customers complete their projects quickly and easily by providing assistance from development to deployment.

ZIO Modules for Axiomtek's 3.5" SBCs with "0" or "3" as the Model's Last Digit

ZIO Embedded Compact Extended Form Factor
The ZIO form factor is an integrated interface standard defined by Axiomtek and has been adopted as one of the specifications for the 3.5" CAPA embedded motherboards to meet concerns regarding insufficient expansion interfaces in small form factor (SFF) single board computers. Included is a wide variety of interfaces such as PCIe, USB, LPC, audio line-out and power on – all of which meet requirements for system integrations.

 I/O Board for Axiomtek's 2.5" Pico-ITX SBCs

Two Sets of Board-to-board Connectors
To overcome the limited I/O space in small form factor SBCs like the pico-ITX motherboards, Axiomtek designs I/O modules with two sets of board-to-board connectors to contain a variety of interfaces such as PCIe, USB, LPC, audio line-out and power on. With the I/O board, high speed signals, such as USB 3.0, can become more stable and reliable. The I/O board is an ideal cableless solution to adopt into a system.

Board Dimensions and Mounting Holes
The dimensions of the I/O board are 118 mm x 40 mm, which is then placed on the Region II section of the pico-ITX board similar to the rear I/O connector.

PCI Express Mini Module for SBCs with PCIe Slot

PCI Express Mini Card
The PCI Express Mini module, also known as Mini PCI Express, Mini PCIe and Mini PCI-E, is a replacement for the Mini PCI form factor based on PCI Express. It is developed by the PCI-SIG to support both PCI Express and USB 2.0 connectivity.

Board Dimensions and Mounting Holes
The full-size PCI Express Mini card measures 50 mm x 30 mm.
