PISMOTM is the Platform Independent Storage Module Standard that is run by an advisory council made up by Spansion, ARM, NanoAmp, SMedia, Spreadtrum, Toshiba, Analog Devices, Broadcom, Cypress, M Systems and Micron Technology, Inc.

The platform-independent storage module PISMOTM specifications address issues regarding finding the right combination of ICs for mobile devices. The PISMOTM Standard provides convenient, interchangeable memory test boards. PISMOTM boards significantly reduce complications in design by allowing for shorter design cycles and faster time-to-market.

Pismo 1

The goal of PISMOTM is to enable the more rapid deployment of increasingly powerful and reasonable mobile telecommunications, computer, and consumer products.

Samtec’s Q Strip® connectors are compliant to the PISMOTM standard:

Pismo 2

The PISMO2 specification defines mechanical and electrical specifications for SFF memory modules. PISMO2 memory modules can be used for verifying and prototyping memory devices with a variety of memory host controllers.

Samtec’s SEARAYTM open-pin-field arrays are compliant to the PISMO2 standard:

Embedded World 2019 is the conference for security in electronic systems, distributed intelligence, the Internet of Things / e-mobility, and energy efficiency. In other words, you are going to experience a wide range of embedded systems. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, since we ...
