Embedded devices are used across many industrial applications such as industrial automation, retail PoS, communications, robotics, defence systems, access control systems etc. Unlike those of consumer electronics products, the lifecycle of most embedded devices ranges around 7-10 years and the sales volume is limited. The long product lifecycle and limited market presence creates significant challenges for the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
Computer Modules come to rescue here and empower the OEMs to focus on their value like the <a>design</a> and development of the end product application. Computer on Modules provide the benefits of faster time to market, reduced development time & cost, and easy migration to future technologies.
This infographic from Toradex explains the concept of COMs and where they can be used. For more information on Computer on Modules, please visit us at http://www.toradex.com/products/computer-on-modules
