Bandwidth demands of radar and signals intelligence create pressure to refresh XMC and FMC mezzanine board standards


Embedded computing designers for demanding digital signal processing (DSP) subsystems in military embedded systems like radar, electronic warfare (EW), and signals intelligence (SIGINT), are making broad use of I/O mezzanine boards in the XMC and FMC form factors, yet engineers are worrying that tomorrow's applications -- and even some of today's -- are finding modern mezzanine modules inadequate for the task.
