The PMAC2-PC/104 from Delta Tau uses a high level of integration to achieve this small form factor. The main board has only three main components — the Motorola DSP CPU with embedded RAM, a servo ASIC and flash memory for program backup.
As a series of boards in the PC/104 form factor, this controller can be installed in a PC/104 stack or act as a stand-alone controller with serial communications, including RS-232, USB, or Ethernet. Because it uses standard PMAC2 firmware, it has all of the software capabilities of any PMAC2 controller.
