NORCROSS, GEORGIA - American Megatrends (AMI), a global leader in BIOS, BMC and remote management tools and utilities, is pleased to announce that it has recently joined the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG) as an Executive Member.
PICMG is a nonprofit consortium of over 140 companies and organizations that collaboratively develop open standards for high performance telecommunications, military, industrial, and general-purpose embedded computing applications. Equipment built to PICMG standards is used worldwide and its standards are generally available for use without restriction. Key standards families developed by PICMG include CompactPCI®, AdvancedTCA®, MicroTCA®, AdvancedMC®, CompactPCI® Serial, COM Express®, SHB Express®, and HPM (Hardware Platform Management).
COM Express is a key specification defined within PICMG, which defines Small Form Factor (SFF) and Computer on Module (COM) single board computers with a wide range of commercial applications. PICMG is working on upcoming versions of the specification with higher levels of manageability, including the addition of a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) as a part of the design. In its role as an Executive Member, AMI will contribute its expertise in BMC firmware and remote management to help expand the manageability aspects of the COM Express specification.
