Greater Versatility with Xi3™
A new structural and design standard in computer
We all use a variety of computers and computer-related products every day.
Unfortunately, because each serves a different function, each is custom-designed in almost every way. The design of today's computer makes it impractical to use them interchangeably or cross-functionally
Until now, computer processing has not been designed to adapt to multiple situations or environments. Manufacturers design, test, and build a unique computer core and a specific set of subsystems for each new project at hand.
As a result, the core processor built for one specific application is not used for other, multiple applications, and cannot be readily or cost-effectively reconfigured.
ISYS Technologies™ has pioneered the Xi3 Modular Computer architecture, a new structural and design standard in computer core processing versatility.
The Xi3 architecture removes the core processing unit from the peripherals, such as the monitor, hard drive, sound card, or printer interface. The core processor is then interchangeable and adjustable, allowing a computer's application to be varied or manipulated at will.
This design approach allows a single processing unit to be used as a workstation one day and a server the next. This is accomplished using interchangeable circuit boards, logic chips and interfaces, called backplanes.
For example, today an IT professional must purchase a specially configured box to perform the function of a file server. He also has to purchase separate, specially configured boxes to use as workstations. These computing boxes are not designed to be readily cross compatible nor to be used interchangeably. Comparably, the server cannot easily be reconfigured as a workstation, and the workstation cannot be reconfigured as a server.
The IT professional of the future can buy one Xi3-based Modular Computer (a multi-application core processing module that can easily be configured to operate as a server), and then quickly and easily such a Modular Computer can be reconfigured to operate as a workstation.
Likewise, today a car manufacturer works with a number of processor-controlled electronic subsystems and each has a specific application. These subsystems power the car's acceleration, braking, steering, handling, fuel injection and seating, as well as communication, navigation, information, and entertainment functions. Each subsystem is unique in almost every way, non-interchangeable and not cross compatible with the other subsystems.
However, the car manufacturer of the future will be able to integrate, interchange and configure core processing modules compatible with each unique subsystem.
By utilizing the Xi3 architecture, the core processing designs of the, future will make specific application functionality independent from the computer all together.
