  Form factor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The form factor of a device is its linear dimensions and configuration, as distinguished from other measures of size (for example Gigabytes, a measure of storage size).
in engineering, the form factor is the proportion of radiation leaving one surface which is intercepted by another surface.
in electronics, the form factor of an alternating current waveform (signal) is the ratio of the RMS (Root Mean Square) value to the average value.

 CG351-551 Radiosity: Concerning Form Factor.
According to Nusselt's analogue, for a finite area, the form factor of the patch is equivalent to the fraction of the circle at the base of the hemisphere.
Delta form factors are the form factors computed from the center of the base of the hemicube to a pixel on the hemicube.
The form factor from a patch i to another patch j is the sum of the delta form factors covered when patch j is projected onto the hemicube surface of patch i.

 Small form factor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Small form factor (SFF) is used in reference to motherboard form factors that are smaller than the ubiquitous ATX sized board, such as microATX and BTX as well as some proprietary designs.
The form factor of a motherboard determines the specifications for its general shape and size and imposes some restrictions on the case and power supply that can be supported, the placement of mounting holes, and the physical layout and organization of the board.
With their relatively small size, there are technological challenges in keeping them quiet and cool with the main sources of heat being the graphics card and CPU.

A machine with the same capabilities as a full-sized desktop can now be repackaged in a small box, without the difficulties of sourcing special "small" and "low-profile" components that people had to do in the past.
Small Form Factor (SFF) represents a new footprint for computers — one where they're now small enough to disappear from the desk, or the exact opposite: often considered attractive enough in their brushed-aluminum and anodized-fl finishes with bright blue LEDs to be a showpiece of status.
A typical small form factor PC is not quite a cube.

For microprocessors, form factor generally refers to the physical interface between the CPU and the motherboard.
Another type of CPU form factor is the name of the attachment mechanism, such as Socket 478 (the numeral refers to the number of contact points), Slot 1 or Slot A.
For dynamic RAM chips, the most common form factor is the 168-pin dual inline memory module, or DIMM, where RAM chips are located on both sides of a small circuit board that plugs into a designated socket on the motherboard.

 Introducing COM Express -- a new small form-factor for embedded computing
The Extended Form factor makes room for double the memory capacity and dual-channel memory configurations, in addition to larger processors and chipsets.
The form factor flexibility of COM Express enables developers to segment their designs for different classes of embedded applications, noted Kishan Jainandunsing, vice president of Technology and Business Development at PFU Systems.
The Extended Form Factor is a good choice for mobile or stationary applications where performance is more important than low power dissipation, such as 4D ultrasound machines, arcade gaming devices, multimedia kiosks and electronic advertising billboards.

The current ATX form factor, what you'll undoubtedly be using in your own home computer as I type this, has been around for nearly eleven years if I'm doing my sums correctly.
Cramped designs, the necessity that the voltage regulator circuitry is all on the top side of the board, hell, the necessity that all major components reside on the top of the board and other such factors all conspire to make it an electrical nightmare to layout the majority of ATX mainboard designs.
It exists, but the push is towards the smaller form factors at the moment.
