OverviewXi3 Corporation has created a new paradigm for computing -- the Xi3 Computer Architecture -- a premise that computers should be modifiable, updateable and upgradeable so that they have a useful life longer than the standard 3-5 years. In the Xi3 Computer Architecture, the tradtional motherboard has been broken into three separate cards and reduced to ~3-inches square per card, each of which can be
simply and quickly replaced.
The Xi3 Modular Computer (5 Series model) is the first commercial product to utilize the Xi3 Computer Architecture. The Xi3 Modular Computer measures less than 4-inches per side, is powered by 64-bit x86 dual core processors, yet requires an average of 20 Watts or less to operate. Supported by six issued U.S. patents, the Xi3 Modular Computer utilizes the Xi3 Computer Architecture which divides the classic motherboard into three separate boards:
- One board that houses the processors and RAM, and
- Two additional I/O boards to handle all connectivity and input/output requirements.
