International Standardization Engagement

Why do we need Standardization in Embedded ?

The benefits of the standardization in the embedded computer industry are numerous but just to name a few:

  • Compatibility between various manufacturers products
  • Interoperability
  • Quality
  • Independence of single source suppliers
  • Increased availability and reduced costs and time to market
  • Improved Return on investment (ROI)

MSC Technologies understands the price performance advantage of the standardized systems and is actively promoting and participating in a number of the embedded computer industry standardization bodies and associations.

Since 2005 MSC is a proud executive member of the PCI Computer Manufacturer Group (PICMG), a consortium of companies who collaboratively develop open specifications for high performance telecommunications and industrial computing applications.

During this period MSC was involved in a number of working groups helping with the development of the open specifications like the widely adopted COM Express™ standard specification.

The new technologies and changes in market requirements from time to time force the changes in the open specifications. Being at the forefront of the new technologies and working with various embedded computer markets MSC Embedded understands the necessity and benefits of the changes and is actively participating in bringing those changes into the specifications.

Open specifications allow users to chose from more options, ensure second source availability and longevity of the investments in baseboard designs, system integration and software development.

At the end of 2011 MSC was one of the founders of the Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies (SGeT), devoted to developing a larger scope of the embedded computer products specifications ranging from the low level hardware components to the systems level. MSC is represented at the SGeT board and is committed to the standardization process for the benefit of the whole industry.

All open standard groups welcome embedded computer manufacturers and users to participate in improving the existing and developing the new open standard specifications and bringing new ideas to the industry for energy efficiency, environmental protection and effective technologies.
