A system-on-module (SOM) offers several advantages over other embedded computing system form factors. It integrates all major components such as processor, memory, network and other interfaces in a compact module, reducing design, development, integration and testing costs. SOMs are flexible and scalable, allowing developers to respond quickly to changing requirements and new technologies. Using pre-built and tested SOM modules improves reliability and reduces the risk of incompatibilities and errors. This speeds up the development process by allowing developers to focus on application development and module integration instead of spending time developing hardware components. In summary, a SOM provides a cost-effective, flexible, scalable, reliable and time-saving solution for embedded system developers.

A System-on-Module (SOM) is suitable for a wide range of applications, especially for products with limited space and that require a fast time-to-market. The flexibility and scalability of a SOM make it ideal for applications where requirements and technologies can change quickly, such as industrial automation, digital signage, transportation and logistics, medical and healthcare, gaming and entertainment, and smart cities. The integrated interfaces of a SOM also make it ideal for applications that require fast processing of data and high computing power, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. Another advantage is the reduction of development and integration time.

System-on-Modules (SOMs) are compact and modular solutions for the integration of embedded computing functions. The main functions of SOMs are the integration of processor, memory, network, I/O interfaces in a single module. SOMs are flexible and scalable, allowing developers to quickly respond to changes in requirements and technologies.

Computer-on-Modules (COM) and System-on-Modules (SOM) are both modular solutions for embedded computing functions. Both module standards require a carrier board that carries the signals and interfaces integrated in the module to the outside. The major difference between the two technologies lies in the combination with the carrier board: Computer-on-Modules are connected to the carrier board with standardized board-to-board connectors, SOMs are soldered directly to the carrier board.
