PICMG 1.3 Half Size (HPCIE)
The PICMG 1.3 standard represents an advancement of the PICMG 1.0 Standard. Contrary to the PICMG 1.0 standard with ISA and PCI Bus, PICMG 1.3 CPU cards offer a PCI and PCI express interface from board to backplane. Hence, there is a higher range and thus a higher data transmission speed available. The PICMG 1.3 standard is available as full-size and half-size format.
