SBCs vs COMs – a comparison of embedded computing platforms

Nowadays there are two major categories of embedded computing solutions available to designers and engineers: SBCs (Single Board Computers) and COMs (Computer-on-Modules). Both present distinctive features that make one a better choice in a certain context and worse in other one. SBCs and COMs are available in different levels of energy-efficiency and computing power and they differ in flexibility and cost per unit.

This White Paper will identify the pros and cons of Single Board Computers and Computer-on-Modules, exploring the technical differences and unique features of both and will also examine the implications of choosing one platform over another from a business perspective.
