With Avnet Integrated, you gain a partner with a deep understanding of embedded computing and the expertise to help you identify the right solution. If your requirements are unique, we’ll design and manufacture a solution for you. When it comes to meeting your needs, nothing is off the board with Avnet Integrated’s unique combination of extensive development competence and manufacturing experience.
Our Original Design Manufacturer (ODM), MSC Technologies—an Avnet company, has more than 30 years of experience 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.
We specialize in:
- x86 CPU architecture
- ARM Cortex-Ax architecture
- FPGA / FPGA SOC design
- High speed designs (DDRx DRAM, 10GbE, PCIe, USB 3.0, frontside buses, graphics)
- Simulation (thermal, signal integrity, functional)
- Operating system support (Windows / Windows Embedded / Linux Embedded)
- BIOS and software development
Avnet Integrated runs three state-of-the art manufacturing sites in Freiburg, Germany, Stutensee, Germany and Malta, all of which are equipped with the latest fully automatic manufacturing equipment.
With the latest production equipment and a high degree of automation, Avnet Integrated can offer best-in-class, high quality output at a very low manufacturing cost.
Our product, test and production engineers work hand-in-hand with you to achieve optimized product quality. Our sophisticated SAP-integrated MES and quality system ensures full traceability of our products and includes strict version control for each product made.
COM Express: scalable performance, built to fit
COMs allow alternative modules of different performance and feature levels to be used in the module socket of the same carrier board. In addition to this scalability of performance, COMs also offer:
- Reduced complexity
- Focuses core competence on system design
- Faster development cycles – shorter time to market
- Lower cost-of-ownership
- Minimizes development risk
- High flexibility
- Extended lifecycle concept
- Second source availability due to standardization
MSC's complete COM Express portfolio includes types 2, 6, 7 and 10 and ranges from low-end Intel Atom processors to high end Core i7 and Xeon—and these range from mini to basic format. MSC's widespread Qseven portfolio is one of the widest in the industry, from Single-Core ARM to Quad-Core x86, Cortex-A9 even the latest x86. The SMARC 2.0 product range is steadily growing and spans ARM Cortex-A9 to Cortex-A72, including the latest x86 Atom SOCs. The nanoRISC module family combines compact size, low power and low cost with ARM Cortex-A8 and A9 processors.
