SOM Design-in Services A Series of Value-Added Services for Carrier Board Development Why SOM Design Services? System On Modules (SOM) boards integrate most of the complicated CPU architecture and all basic circuitry onto a single, small modular board. Only 20-30% of the design effort is located on the customer’s side. In order to help facilitate the development of carrier boards, customers must look for related design-in information and technical assistance to secure a time-saving solution. Now, Advantech can anticipate the customer’s needs and offer a comprehensive range of SOM Design-in Services.

What are SOM Design-in Services? Advantech SOM Design-in Services helps customers to reduce the time and work involved with designing new carrier board. We handle the complexities of technical research and greatly minimize the development risk associated with carrier boards. Advantech SOM Design-in Services offers 5 major channels: SOM Product, Design Assistance, Thermal Solution, Software and Valued-Added services.

SOM Design-in Services Benefits w Faster Development Time / Time-to-Market w Reduced Design Effort and Technical Complexity w Cost-Saving and Minimized Development Risk
