Specification

Proudly Designed and Manufactured in the USA

Piconium, uniquely, is a modular Single Board Computer. Comprising a "Carrier card" and a Com Express (COMX) computer module, it is designed from the beginning to be integrated into embedded manufactured systems. It is NOT a hobbyist or enthusiast board that is designed to exist on a desktop. If you want a reliable, long manufacturing life, professionally designed single board system, Piconium is simply the best you can buy. Designed by engineers in the USA that have been in the business for over 40 years. Manufactured in the USA.

The Sweet Spot

The Piconium was built to deliver high-performance computing in demanding environments. It is essentially, a modular, high end laptop PC in a very small form factor that is easy to integrate form factor. Our customers are using the Piconium in a variety of industrial and commercial products.

  1. Industrial Automation

  2. Data Capture & Processing

  3. Kiosks

  4. Imaging & Instrumentation

  5. Digital Signage

  6. Health & Fitness

Pricing And Availability

Small quantities are ready to ship immediately, for most of our most popular configurations. We can get you prototyping within days. Volume orders ship within 12 weeks, sometimes much faster. Contact us for volume discounts.

Key Features

  1. Intel Processor & GPU

    Intel / AMD x86 32 or 64 bit processors enjoy a huge universe of OTS, open source and commercial software. There is simply no comparison. You can save enormous dollars and dev time.

  2. Reliable

    The last thing you want is a device failing in the field. Our engineering team cut its teeth building control systems for medical instruments and even nuclear reactors. We know a thing to two about building reliable hardware.

  3. Small & Easy to Integrate

    The best and most affordable embedded system in the world is useless if you have to mount it with chewing gum and zip ties. The Piconium is easy to mount and incorporates heat dissipation in the mounting design.

  4. Long Manufacturing life

    Build the same product next year, or 5, or even 10 years from now as you do today. No company wants to spend time and dollars on reengineering a product due to component obsolescence.

  5. Industrial or Commercial Specs

    Hot, noisy environments are where the Piconium shines. It is available in configurations that can handle industrial and commercial temperature ranges.

  6. Very High Performance

    Built around high-performance Intel processors, the Piconium is ideally suited to moving large amounts of data, rendering large displays, or processing lots of data.

  7. Low Thermal Profile

    Having a fan spinning in your product is a failure waiting to happen. Under normal loads, the Piconium can be passively cooled.

  8. Expandable

    The Piconium has 7 USB ports, i2C, serial, SATA, ethernet, LVDS & HDMI display ports

  9. Modular

    After the design cycle is complete, options exist to save some product cost or increase performance by choosing a different COMX module for the Piconium. No other single board computer gives you this flexibility combined with everything else that Piconium offers
