Difference between a CoM and a SoM


What is the Difference between a CoM and a SoM? The terms “Computer-on-Module” and “System-on-Module” are used interchangeably and are widely accepted as synonyms. It may be arguable that historically the term CoM came from the x86 and embedded PC world, whereas the term SoM has its roots in modules which are built around SoC based devices leveraging the ARM and other lower power, highly integrated architectures.

What Industries Use a CoM/SoM? Practically any industry you can think of. It is the same as asking what industries use Personal Computers. Just as a PC can be used for a multitude of tasks from playing games and surfing the web to designing cars and aircraft, the concept of a module is not confined to a set of specific applications or industries. Computer Modules are application agnostic; they are not aware of the underlying details of the system they are being used in, and nor do they care, meaning there are no hard rules as to the industries or applications in which they may be used.
