COM-Based SBCs: The Superior Architecture for Small Form Factor Embedded Systems

Embedded systems designers are under pressure to reduce the cost and size of electronics while improving time-to-market and overall system reliability. Today, many designers achieve these goals by using off-the-shelf x86 single board computers (SBCs) with I/O modules stacked above or below to implement the special-purpose I/O that makes the embedded system fit the application requirements. An alternative to this traditional approach is to use a Computer-on-Module (COM)-based SBC. By using a COM-based SBC, a designer may gain significant benefits over traditional SBCs in the areas of: Scalable CPU performance Long product life High feature density Access to the latest CPU technology sooner Compact size Single vendor solution for purchasing and support logistics
