Shuttle anticipates that demand for BTX systems will not pick up until next year, while projecting that 5% of the 750,000 XPCs it expects to ship this year will be BTX systems. Shuttle will roll out three new BTX XPCs this year, each of which will be built using the pico-BTX form factor but has no plans to introduce any XPCs built using the slightly larger micro-BTX form factor. For most companies it is still relatively cheaper to produce products using ATX standards, as power supplies and heat dissipation modules for the BTX platform are still US$ 10-20 more expensive than similar products used on the ATX platform.
