PICMG 1.3 (SPCIE/PCIE)
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.
