The demand for intelligent human machine interface (HMI) systems, flexible panel PCs and easy-to-configure Internet of Things (IoT) gateways for industry remains strong and will continue to grow.
In the development of these innovative industrial products, flexible design and optimized time-to-market are the main priorities. The aim is to bring the new system onto the market quickly in order to secure valuable market share.
The driving forces are modern applications — diverse visualization and complex display solutions, object recognition systems, IoT gateways, medical devices, professional infotainment systems, building automation systems, transportation applications and gaming systems.
To quickly develop a precisely tailored hardware solution for each application, more and more standardized basic components are being used.
A broad section of predefined, already verified building blocks such as embedded computer modules or connectivity solutions can get designers so far. Combining a standardized computer-on-module (COM) with a standard baseboard can move designs even further.
