What’s the Difference Between PCIe/104 and COM Express?

At Sealevel, we love designing with both PCIe/104 and COM Express for embedded systems. 

Both options have great benefits. They: 

  • Enable faster time to market,
  • Offer flexibility, scalability, and long-term availability, and
  • Have a compact design for improved SWaP-C2 optimization.

When deciding which design path to recommend, our key determining factors boil down to environment, peripheral technology, and available footprint. 

It’s important to evaluate these factors as early as possible in the design process to ensure a long-term solution. Finding the right engineering partner to help with these considerations will guide you to the best technology path for your application.
