System on Modules are ideal to build variety of embedded products targeted for diverse industries. Get to know about the Arm-based SoM portfolio of Toradex and their relevant applications.
The Toradex blog encapsulates key insights and updates from our developers that would help provide an in-depth understanding of our product portfolio and its many advantages. Additionally, trends and tools are outlined in order to keep you abreast with developments at Toradex.
In this blog, I will give detailed information about the various Touch solutions offered by Toradex and introduce the concept of 'Capacitive multi-touch solution', by which you can easily use any multi-touch device on our modules with some software updates.
A good product is worthless without good support. We offer various support channels that complement our robust products. With these various technical support options, we endeavor to reduce your development time and risk to as minimum as possible.
Does your wish-list for choosing the ideal partner for embedded development include - long term product availability, excellent post-sales support, low cost, etc.? Read this post to know how Toradex can match more than your expectations.
Single Board Computer (SBC) offers a ready-to-use embedded development platform for building end-products. SBC accelerates time-to-market and minimizes development cost and risk. However, System on Module (SoM)/Computer on Module (CoM) is a more appropriate choice for building embedded products.

Do you remember the good old times of the 8bit microcontrollers? Using a digital IO was one of the simplest tasks you could do – one bit to select the direction and one more bit to set or request the pin level was all you needed to know.
Chip-based or custom embedded development compromises the time-to-market and cost of the product. Off-the-shelf Computer on Module can address these requirements better than chip-based development.
Know about the evolution of various versions of Windows CE/ Windows Embedded Compact and Toradex support for these versions. Also, explore the suitability of these various versions for your embedded product development.
Presenting a short overview of the differences and relationship between the Toradex default BSP based on the Ångström distribution and the Yocto projects reference distribution “Poky”.
SBCs are widely used in embedded product development as they accelerate time-to-market and reduce development cost. However, there are some constraints that SBCs fail to address. So, what is an ideal platform for embedded development?
Even in the days of the Internet of Things sometimes you still need to access and control your embedded device from a local connection. Maybe you don't want to do some critical configuration or data exchange over the network for security reasons, or you need a special maintenance interface for your device. In this article, I will share some thoughts of how you could talk to your embedded device over USB.
Embedded device development from scratch leads to high development cost and time. OEMs should favor off-the-shelf embedded platforms to develop their applications. This helps in reducing input cost and accelerating time-to-market.
LESSONS LEARNED FROM BUILDING AND MAINTAINING LEGACY SOFTWARE
If you are one of our customers who use the Toradex Windows CE code libraries, you might have noticed that there are now two different versions available for download. I want to tell you the story behind this update and finally encourage you to use the new API.
