A Story Worth Telling

Our History & People Set Us Apart.


Get to know us better.

ZiLog Z80


Established in Duluth, Georgia in 1989, our first computer board used a Z-80 (ZiLog) 8 bit microprocessor running at 4MHz. The first boards were designed using Mylar and were centered around providing lots of ISA slots for customers.



As a founding member of PICMG (PCI Industrial Manufacturers Group) Trenton Systems pulled together the industry to define a standard form factor called PICMG 1.0. An interesting side note, Trenton is the only original member of PICMG is still in business. That same year Trenton moved to Gainesville, Georgia.



Intel® created a new partner program called the Embedded and Communications Alliance. As a charter member, Trenton Systems has access to Intel’s roadmap, technical support directly from Intel®, as well as co-selling opportunities. To this day our close partnership with Intel® has been vital to designing and supporting our processor product line.



Again, Trenton led the industry by writing the PICMG 1.3 specification which targeted a new protocol called PCI Express. Trenton had always provided products with up to 17 slots of ISA, PCI, and PCI-X; but now Trenton was able to provide customers with up to 20 lanes of PCI Express.



By adding a full mechanical engineering group Trenton Systems not only designs the processor boards and backplanes, but now also designs and integrates full systems (rugged chassis, power supply, etc). Customers now have one place to go for full rugged servers and workstations.

Lawrenceville, GA


After 22 years in Gainesville, GA we finally outgrew our building. Trenton Systems relocated to Lawrenceville, GA, which tripled the size of our previous facility and provided a state of the art design and manufacturing facility. Trenton Systems also does the first software (BIOS and IPMI) development in house.
