The System-On-Module (SOM) product line from Evalue along with a 30-day Baseboard Prototyping Services (BPS) can help developers save time, cut costs, reduce risk, and increase performance and scalability. Compact in size, the SOM series integrates full PC functionality with a variety of platforms and CPU choices within a very small 68 mm x 100 mm area. The use of a wide selection of CPU processors gives flexibility and scalability to meet different performance requirements. Like a high-integration chip, the SOM product is designed to work with any SOM-144 compliant baseboard, which is equipped with add-on functionalities, necessary connectors and a SOM-144 interface.
All core motherboard components are included within the SOM module. This enables system integrators to focus on custom specific baseboard development independent of the dynamic nature of CPU and chipset evolution. As a result, a solution-oriented baseboard can be easily designed. Customers can also also complete engineering samples in 30 days if they take advantage of assistance from Evalue's Baseboard Prototyping Services (BPS). Customers need only supply specifications such as baseboard dimensions, specialised interfaces, and I/O connectors. Supported by a wide range of OS drivers, customers can easily select the desired performance grade by plugging the appropriate SOM into the SOM-144 interface on the solution baseboard.
To help customers quickly determine the I/O connectors and function blocks, Evalue provides the EEV-1401, the SOM-144 evaluation carrier board for preliminary configuration and compatibility testing. Evalue also offers two application platforms for use with the Internet; EAP-1432 for wireless gateway, and EAP-1431 for firewall. With these two ready-to-use networking application platforms, customers can immediately take advantage of their benefits.
For a POS (point of sale) system the SOM system can maximise system flexibility with minimum cost and time. When building a POS system, one may first develop an easily-designed carrier board with the desired connectivity to one's finished system. Secondly, select from a wide range of SOM-144 modules to complete the board solution. If upgrading a POS System there are a choice of SOM-144 modules to replace the CPU module.
For Panel PC systems, to reduce wiring and increase reliability one must decide whether to develop a specific computer board to fit, or try to adapt the panel PC to one of the numerous single board computers available. An easy solution is to use Evalue's System-On-Module. This solution tailors the application baseboard to one's specific requirements while significantly reducing development time and cost. As the carrier board is independent of the design of the SOM-144 module, the development of an SOM-144 application baseboard can be achieved in less than half the time it takes to develop a traditional solution board, thereby giving the system integrators the competitive edge when building the specific application boards.
