Individual, manufacturer-specific or industry standard? When selecting the form factor for System on Modules, there are three options with their respective strengths and weaknesses. This white paper helps to select the form factor for the next embedded project.
A System on Module (SoM) is an embedded computer module, often also referred to as a Computer on Module (CoM). It is soldered or plugged onto a carrier board. All relevant functions or functional units are located on the module. For example, processor and graphics unit, working (DRAM) and program memory (NOR, NAND, eMMC), clock and energy management as well as numerous communication interfaces such as Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB or I2C. A SoM encapsulates the essential parts of an embedded computer and, unlike a single board computer (SBC), is not a ready-to-use system. The components that are missing for this purpose, such as power supply or connectors, must be accommodated on the SoM carrier board.
DH electronics has made embedded systems its speciality and offers both standard products and customer-specific solutions for the digital world of tomorrow.
