    An  {open}  {PC}  {motherboard}  specification  by 
  ATX  is  a  development  of  the  {Baby  AT}  specification  with  the 
  motherboard  rotated  90  degrees  in  the  chassis.  The  {CPU}  and 
  {SIMM}  sockets  have  been  relocated  away  from  the  {expansion 
  card}  slots  meaning  that  all  the  slots  support  full-length 
  cards.  More  {I/O}  functions  are  integrated  on  the 
  motherboard.  As  the  longer  edge  of  the  board  is  now  at  the 
  back  of  the  chassis,  there  is  more  space  for  connectors;  also 
  the  I/O  opening  on  the  back  panel  of  the  chassis  has  been 
  defined  as  double  the  previous  height,  allowing  vendors  to  add 
  extra  on-board  I/O  functions  over  and  above  the  standard. 
  Most  {Pentium  Pro}  boards  use  this  {form  factor}. 
  As  well  as  the  motherboard  size,  layout,  and  placement,  the 
  ATX  specification  also  includes  requirements  for  power  supply 
  and  fan  specification  and  location. 
  The  full  size  ATX  board  measures  305mm  wide  by  244mm  deep. 
  There  is  also  a  Mini-ATX  form  factor,  284mm  by  208mm.
