Laird Connectivity’s Summit SOM 8M Plus allows Design Teams to develop wireless enabled products faster, easier and with more security.
In the same way that utilizing a wireless module eliminates a long list of complex tasks for a smart product, a System-on-Module (SOM) strategy simplifies engineering by providing engineers with a pre-designed, pre-certified solution that integrates the wireless module, the device’s main processor, high-speed RAM, reliable flash memory, and power management on the same board. This eliminates a tremendous amount of from-scratch engineering work as well as the complex and time-consuming engineering tasks involved in a chip-down design, allowing design teams to leap ahead in the product development process.
Using a SOM also gives design teams the ability to quickly incorporate advanced functionality and more stringent security into products without the complex work that would be required to accomplish those with a chip-down approach.
This acceleration and simplification of a wirelessly enabled design is valuable for every engineering department, particularly for those with a small staff and limited resources. A SOM strategy allows these smaller design teams to keep pace with intimidating project pipelines and aggressive timelines.
Laird Connectivity’s newest SOM solution, the Summit SOM 8M Plus, can serve as the centerpiece of their system-on-module design strategy for a broad range of advanced IoT applications, including industrial IoT rugged handheld devices, industrial IoT gateways, IoT vision solutions, and healthcare devices.
This white paper provides details about the Summit SOM 8M Plus and discusses:
- How design teams can take advantage of its capabilities to develop wireless-enabled products faster, easier, and with more security.
- Best practices and important design considerations that will help your engineering team be successful with your first SOM design projects.
