A Modular Approach to Delivering Innovation

You know that anything that saves you time in developing your product leads to achieving your goals quicker. This has been our experience working with OEMs over the years which is why Avnet has developed a robust offering of System-on-Modules (SoM). Our SoM devices are available in the most popular architectures and different form factors. You get the features you want without investing time designing in the discrete processor and support components yourself.

Our SoM products give you a device to develop your application on and then add to your production Bill of Material (BOM). Avnet’s experts will show you how to integrate the SoM into your application including injecting Intellectual Property (IP) from our partner ecosystem. This system level approach to design is your fastest pathway to reaching your market.

A SoM for All Occasions

When your design calls for customizing the code or running multiple features in parallel, Avnet has SoM devices based on the leading programmable System-on-Chip (SoC) processors. In situations where you want to run your code on ARM® or X86 architectures, we have SoM products for that as well. All of these serve as an excellent building block for a variety of applications including Embedded Vision and Internet of Things (IoT) appliances.

If you’re looking to develop with a SoM around industry standard form factors, Avnet Embedded’s MSC Technology has SMARC, Qseven™, COM Express™, ETX® and nanoRISC® modules. These are ideal when you’re looking to offer different performance grade options to your customer as part of your strategy.  These SoM devices are also well suited for market specific applications like industrial and healthcare.

Avnet also carries SoM technologies from our world-class embedded processing partners. These come in a mix of popular architectures and form factors. Avnet is an authorized source for every product we offer so you can be assured the parts in your design are original from the factory. You can review the supplier offering we support by visiting our product selection tool.

Avnet’s engineering experts will take the time to understand the functionality you’re looking to deliver and then recommend the right SoM to meet your requirements. You’ll never feel like we’re trying to force your solution to fit into a SoM that won’t meet your objectives. Our team makes sure you deliver the exact experience with the right level of performance.
