System on Module - SoMFurther to my last blog post, once my virtual friend Harry (CTO of BestECG company) decided to use System on Modules (SoM) for building the next ECG machine, he started exploring various SoM vendors to choose the ideal one. Harry knows that the SoM’s hardware is a commodity, and any vendor can offer a SoM based on a leading processor, so he created a bucket list for choosing his ideal SoM partner.

Toradex was able to match more than Harry’s expectations.

Long-term availability

Long term availability: Guaranteed 10+ years availability of modules. For example, the Colibri PXA270 module was launched in 2005, and this module shall be available till 2020

Scalable

Scalable platforms: Pin-compatible modules that enable upgrades on existing platforms as easy as plug-and-play. This helps OEMs mitigate technology obsolescence issues

Free lifetime product maintenance

Free lifetime maintenance: Continuous software upgrades with OS updates, feature additions & bug fixes. Hardware-change notification process for alleviating component obsolescence issue

Fast Boot

In-house development: In-house development of the hardware and software. The result is a highly-optimized platform with optimal performance and minimum power consumption

Support

Free premium support: Direct support from the engineers, who have developed the modules. So, the customers get the best technical support in the least lead time

Savings

Competitive pricing: Direct online sales without involving any intermediaries, so the prices are competitive and publicly disclosed

Independent warehouses

Local warehouses: Independent warehouses at geographically dispersed locations. This ensures ex-stock availability and alleviates any import issues

Free Software Tools and Utilities

Software ecosystem: Host of free tools, pre-built libraries & service partners, that helps customers in their embedded product development

With my earlier blog posts, I tried to answer the following questions:

In this blog post, I have attempted to showcase why Toradex would be your ideal SoM partner for your next project. In my next post, I will give you a few details about the Toradex product families and which end-applications can be built using these modules.
