Tower in a Teacup:
How the Small Form Factor Transition is Reshaping Embedded and Military Computing
The predisposition that “bigger is better” pervades in many areas, but in computing greater size is almost always a liability. Even in a 60-ton armored tank, size, weight, and power (SWaP) remain at a premium. Such environments demand the sort of small form factor (SFF) solutions that have dominated embedded computing initiatives for decades. Fortunately, the collaboration of computer manufacturers and standard groups, and the ever-shrinking size of circuits and interconnects significantly brings conventionally-sized systems down to diminutive proportions, while still making great leaps in computing performance.
