Choosing the Right Mezzanine for COTS Systems

Because they are effective in handling the extreme breadth of I/O functions required, open architecture embedded systems for military or aerospace applications have always relied on mezzanine, or daughter cards, to provide flexibility and modularity.


"The Pentek Onyx® Model 71760 Four-Channel, 200 MHz, 16-bit A/D XMC software radio board is also available in PCIe, CompactPCI, and OpenVPX form factors."

- Rodger Hosking, Pentek Vice President and Cofounder
