The acronym SoM (System On Module) is used to group a set of compactly sized embedded systems, characterized by construction on a single fixed module.
System on Module solutions proposed by Digimax provide all software and hardware functionality for use in on-the-edge miniaturized applications with high modularity.
SoMs differ from the main System on Chip (SoC) in that unlike the latter they are not placed on a single chip, but rather on a Single Board Computer (SBC) which therefore allows for additional components such as processors, interfaces and memory slots. The complete, preconfigured design ensures their full and rapid operation within finished products such as industrial robots and machine vision cameras.
Ready-to-use nature, coupled with low power consumption make it a complet and versatile embedded system.
The advantages of System on Module for industrial applications
The advantages of embedded SoM or CoM (Computer on Module) solutions are many and have enabled their widespread adoption and development throughout the world. Here are the main strengths:
- Excellent trade-off between performance and flexibility;
- Rapid design and low production costs;
- High possibility of integration within finish products.
Digimax has an extensive catalog of up-to-date and innovative SoMs, through collaboration with the most established and well-known manufacturers within the industrial and IIoT market including Advantech, AAEON, and IEI.
