BTX, acronym for Balanced Technology Extended is an interface specification that provides a common, flexible foundation, based on standards that can be used to build innovative desktop systems. The BTX specification provides new tools and design space for developers to lay out desktop systems, whether designing small, compact systems or very large, expandable systems. BTX is also optimized for the newest desktop technologies, including PCI Express and Serial ATA. It is also designed to allow for better heat dissipation by incorporating a new thermal module design for better air flow.
Intel has developed two reference designs to demonstrate design techniques that result in a successful implementation of a system based on the Balanced Technology Extended (BTX) form-factor specification. *
Intel 12.9-Liter Reference Design (Slim Tower Desktop System)
Intel has designed and validated a 12.9-liter BTX specification-based system that meets next-generation Intel processor and high-performance PCI Express graphics requirements at 4.0 bels, a measurement of sound power.
Intel 6.9-Liter Reference Design (Ultra-small Form-factor Desktop System)
Intel has designed and is in the process of validating a 6.9-liter picoBTX-based system that meets next generation Intel processor requirements at 4.0 bels.

Short for Basic Telephony Extended Markup Language, a scripting language and system that allows for enhanced control of IP phones. It provides an application infrastructure for IP telephony, independent of protocol and terminal. BTXML is based on the eXtensible Markup Language (XML) standard but is tailored to the needs of telephone handsets.
Short for BlueTooth Universal Serial Bus. It is a wireless USB adapter designed specifically to plug into any available Universal Serial Bus (USB) port connecting to a desktop or laptop PC. It allows you to make short-range wireless connections between Bluetooth devices such as cellular phones, personal digital assistants, desktop and notebook computers.
On eBay, eBay alternatives, and classified ad Web sites, BWI is an abbreviation for boxed with instructions. This abbreviation is used by the seller to indicate that the item for sale comes with the original manufacturer’s packaging and papers.
Short for business Web transaction processing. Compared to OLTP, which describes an individual’s business activities on the Internet, BWTP defines how businesses interact and coordinate their services over the Web.
Pronounced beep. Short for Blocks Extensible Exchange Protocol an application protocol framework for connection-oriented, asynchronous request/response interactions. It was designed as a tool kit specifically to handle XML documents on the Internet. BXXP-enabled applications set up and maintain a peer-to-peer network connection between two users that can alternate between functioning as clients and servers. The […]
