As of 1987, Western Digital developed the Low Profile Extended (LPX) motherboard form factor, which was widely used between the late 1980s and the early 1990s. Below is a picture of a Packard Bell LPX motherboard. It measures 9″ wide by 13″ deep, uses a riser card, and has video, parallel, serial, and PS/2 ports placed differently. There is one large brown slot for the riser card on this motherboard, as shown below. The LP in LPX stands for “Low Profile.” The low profile made LPX motherboards slimmer than baby-AT motherboards because expansion cards could be installed parallel to the motherboard.
