SoM design

SoM-based hardware development

We help our clients optimize costs and accelerate time to market with ready-made systems on modules, where it's not necessary to develop hardware platform from scratch. It's a so-called SoM-based desing.

With a SoM we can get FPGA performance and flexibility without the difficulty that comes with PCB design and integration. This enables us to complete projects ahead of time and under budget.

What is SoM

Systems on modules (SoMs) provide integrating relevant functional units such as microcontroller, microprocessors, DSP cores, memory blocks, industry standard communication and analog interfaces onto the printed circuit board (PCB).

Systems on module are embedded in a majority of products from telecommunication systems, automotive equipment, medical, and gaming devices to aerospace. Such mass usage is due to many advantages.

Benefits of using systems-on-modules

Accelerate time-to-market

The module contains generic function modules, so you can focus on developing project-specific tasks.

Minimize risks

Use module components that have been pre-tested and certified to avoid risks.

Reduce costs

Using SoM, you can optimize product costs via the economy of scale. 

Adopt advanced technologies

While developing SoMs, we use the latest solutions from market leaders.

Promwad provides following SoM design services

Custom specialized modules design

We design SoMs based on chips by our partners to address your needs. Our portfolio includes dozens of completed projects for clients all over the world, such as the SPEAr1340-based module (ST)DM3730-based module (TI) and others.

Platform as a ready-made design

Use ready-made Promwad modules to develop your embedded system or use it as a developer's kit for modeling and designing equipment. You can also purchase rights to all documentation on Promwad modules, such as IMX6UL.

Platform improvement

We will modify the module to suit your project requirements. In case you have an outdated platform, or you need to implement unique features for your project, we can offer you the appropriate solution.

Ivan Kuten

To choose the best SoM solution you must ask a number of questions. Do you have in-house design expertise? What is your project budget and expected time-to-market? Where are you going to test and certify your product? In Promwad we can help to answer all of them considering details of your project.
