System On Module design simply brings signals to base board for quick time-to-market

System On Module

System On Module (SOM) is a ready-to-use, powerful and flexible CPU platform for customers to build their applications around. Our customers only have to design the customer solution board (CSB). This customer solution board, which is usually application specific, can be 100 % designed by the customer, or use Advantech’s engineering team or design partner to develop it for them.

System On Module Benefits

  • Faster time to market
  • Cost savings and reduced business risks
  • Scalable CPU choices and upgrades
  • Decreased customer design requirements and technical complexity
  • Feature upgrade and expansion capability
  • Low profile
