Avnet Embedded presents its multiple award-winning /MSC range of embedded compute modules. Designed and manufactured in-house, and available as off-the-shelf modules and as starting points for customized designs, the /MSC range is unparalleled in its suitability for demanding applications that require efficiency, reliability and power in a small package.
Our in-house design and manufacturing team has been leading the industry for more than 30 years in complex and high-speed circuit design, development and production. Our skilled design engineers have many years of experience designing boards with high-end x86 and ARM CPUs as well as with fast memory technology and programmable devices (CPLD, FPGA). Ultra-fast system signal design and layout has always been one of our specialties, making our solutions perfect for applications in demanding industries that require reliability, longevity and accuracy.
More and more OEMs are switching from chip-down manufacturing to a module-based compute solution with Avnet Embedded’s /MSC range. Using the modules in combination with a carrier board speeds up development time, reduces cost and risk, and often requires no compromise in space in the product’s overall design. When space is a premium, modules can be used as a basis for a custom single-board design, solving the challenges for product designers and massively improving margin.

SMARC (“Smart Mobility ARChitecture”) is a versatile small form factor computer module definition targeting applications that require low power, low costs, and high performance.
COM Express™, an open Computer-on-Module standard defined and maintained by the PICMG® (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group), with its different form factors and pin-outs offers the widest scalability in computing performance and power consumption.
COM-HPC™ is a new Computer-on-Module standard designed specifically for High-Performance Computing. It does not replace the COM Express standard, but extends the Computer-on-Module idea to very powerful client and server-class processors, providing an unmatched infrastructure of high-end interfaces.
Qseven™ has in recent years become the most widely adopted new standard for small form factor modules, specifically targeted towards applications that demand low power consumption.⠀⠀
The nanoRISC® module standard has been created for applications requiring a small form factor and lowest power consumption. These modules can be used as a processing supercomponent, while users only need to add application-specific periphery.⠀
Partnering with technology companies is an essential success factor in the OEM/ODM business. It ensures up-to-date products and leading technologies to the benefit of the user of COM technologies.⠀
