Embedded Platform for Industrial Computing (EPIC) is a computer form factor standard put forth by a combined effort from WinSystems, VersaLogic, Octagon Systems, Micro/sys, and Ampro.

EPIC is a new standard that solves the need for an industrial-quality SBC that at 6.5 × 4.5 inches (165 × 114 mm) fits in size between PC/104-Plus and EBX standards. EPIC is endorsed by major SBC companies. It supports both PC/104 and PC/104-Plus expansion to take advantage of the hundreds of I/O modules available worldwide. It also has the flexibility to support high speed, serial buses like PCI Express.
