Avnet's System-on-Module (SOM) and Single Board Computer (SBC) products are meant to be designed into end products. This includes products like UltraZed, Ultra96-V2 , PicoZed ,Azure Sphere Module, MaaXBoard, and SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway. Using a SOM, SBC, module, or Gateway can save an enormous amount of risk and time when developing a new product since much of the critical infrastructure (like memory subsystem and power) are already designed and tested on the SOM/SBC. However, there are a few questions that we frequently get which can be answered with a few critical documents that are posted here on Element14.
