This is where Embedded solutions begin
On its own, a CPU module is fairly useless. It does not evolve into an embedded system until it is paired with a board that has been designed specifically for the application. The concept of COM is based on the understanding that the CPU module is a universal solution while everything that makes the application what it is, is actually located on the carrier board. It must contain everything that could once be found on plug-in cards for PCs.
- Customized boot media: hard disks, flash disks and permanently soldered chips
- Power supplies for all components on the carrier and the COM module
- Digital I/O from RS-232 to RS485 to LVDS, both parallel and serial
- Standard interfaces for Ethernet ranging from 10 to 1000 MB/s
- Field busses realized in FPGA code or with complete controllers
- Connection technology offering everything from
