Harwin supply a 2.54mm pitch PC/104 compatible range of bus connectors for embedded PC applications, designed for stacking boards with a common bus. The devices meet industry standards for embedded PCs:
Configured as 32+32 contacts, the connector supports 8 bit systems
A 20+20 contact device combined with the 32 + 32 contact supports 16 bit systems
With the addition of the 2mm PC/104 Plus connectors, the system becomes PCI Bus compatible. The 2mm connectors are available with traditional solder tails carrying a maximum 3A current. Components are produced in stackthrough and non-stackthrough versions; the stackthrough option allows many modules to be stacked without the need for multiple connector types.
Embedded PC architecture
Comments Wendy Jane Preston, Technical & Marketing Engineer, "Over the past decade, the PC architecture has become an accepted platform for far more than desktop applications. PC/104 industry standard connectors can be employed in numerous markets such as Consumer Electronics, Test & Measurement, Industrial Controls, Medical, Computing and Automotive."
