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:

Samtec performs several tests in-house as part of our qualification testing on a product series; including Low Level Contact Resistance (LLCR). It measures the amount of resistance in a position on a part. LLCR is used in combination with several other tests to track the overall ...
Makers of Louisville and Southern Indiana – Assemble! Obviously, the Samtec blog team has been watching too many superhero and Ron Burgundy movies.  However, the point still remains that this weekend marks a busy schedule for the maker community in the Kentuckiana area. Count’em....
In August we rolled out several updates with our continued support of industry standards, updated our homepage to feature Silicon-to-Silicon content and made a highly requested update to our product detail pages to show pricing and distributor stock. Here are the major updates to...
One Up Studio is a hardware design engineering provider with a focus on signal integrity, and not coincidentally, a Samtec customer. I caught up with Paul Monar, the owner, to pick his brain about some interesting design challenges he faces at One Up and his connector system sele...
Small footprints. Less weight. Signal integrity over longer distances. Scalability. Upgradeability. These and other factors are driving the adoption of optical engines in embedded computing. Annapolis Micro Systems, a leading FPGA board and systems supplier, and Samtec have colla...
