SOM Series Introduction

A SOM module includes DDR memory, flash memory, various interface controllers, and board support package (BSP) software. Embest standard SOM Modules are small, integrated single-board computers with CPUs from lower-end to high-end, with standardized Pin-Out, form factor of the board-to-board connection, expansion interface and modules.

Standard SOM modules give you many advantages in product designing, such as shorter time-to-market, lower costs and minimized risks.


A standard SOM helps you to build a fully customized embedded design without starting from scratch, saving up to 3-12 months of product development time.


A standard SOM enables you to design with validated BSP and saves you energy in application software development when upgrading the hardware.

Embest offers 3 flexible and standard-based form factor as 3 different SOM module product lines
