EPIC Express Board Manufacturers

EPIC Express (Embedded Platform for Industrial Computing) with a form factor of: 115mm x 165mm [4.5" x 6.5"].
The exact size of the original EPIC form factor; however the physical size is dimensioned as 4.328 x 6.296 for both boards.
EPIC boards are smaller then the EBX standard, but larger than the PC104 standard. EPIC is an embedded SBC format which also supports PC/104 modules.
EPIC is an Embedded Motherboard standard for Single Board Computers.
EPIC Specification: Embedded Platform for Industrial Computing, Version 2.0, 2006

The EPIC specification used the J1 and J2 connectors for an ISA interface, and the J3 connector for a PCI interface.
The EPIC Express specification removed the J1 & J2 connectors, kept the J3 PCI connector and added stackable PCIe connectors.

Additional embedded single board computer formats.

Editor note; The manufacturers do not seem to break out the EPIC board offerings from the EPIC Express Boards.
So it's a bit difficult to discern if a particular board has the newer PCI Express connectors or not.
For what ever reason you have to drill-down into the data sheet to determine what version the EPIC card compiles with.
