Strong demand: ADVANTECH supports OSM standard for embedded computing solder modules
The term "OSM" stands for "Open Standard Module" or "Open Source Module" in the context of embedded computing and electronics.
It is an approach using an open standard for the development and integration of solder modules in electronic devices.
ADVANTECH supports this new standard for embedded modules, which was launched by the SGET organization.
The Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies (SGET for short) is concerned with the standardization and promotion of technologies in the field of embedded systems.
It was founded in 2011 and is based in Germany. SGET members include AAEON, ADLINK, ADVANTECH, KONTRON, RENESAS, TI, TQ SYSTEMS, among others. The SGET has already established the well-known SMARC standard.
ADVANTECH is a founding member of SGET and thus one of the most important partners.
How does the new OSM standard benefit you?
How does it benefit you in the development of your projects?
We have compiled the 5 most important points for you:
- Open standard:
OSM modules follow a standardized design that encourages collaboration between different vendors, developers, and products. This makes it easy for you to integrate OSM-compatible modules into different products and systems. You can even develop and customize them yourself or benefit from the experience and ideas of the community.
Since the OSM standard is open, different manufacturers can develop OSM-compatible modules. This leads to a wide variety of available modules that can be used in different applications. So, you can choose from a wide range of modules to find the most suitable solution for your specific needs.
You can reuse OSM modules in different products. This makes it easier for you to scale designs. If a module is successfully used in one product, it can potentially be used in other products with similar requirements.
- Cost savings:
By using OSM modules, you can reduce research and development costs by relying on existing and standardized modules. Once adapted to the existing manufacturing equipment and processes on OSM, you benefit from a smooth and fast production flow.
- Future-proofing and availability:
Open standards like OSM are often designed to extend the life of products. The control and ownership of the technology is virtually in the hands of the developers and the community.
Thanks to the open standard, the supplier or manufacturer can be changed quickly in case of an emergency.
Keep in mind that the exact benefits of OSM can vary depending on an organization's specific needs, scope, and goals.
What's important for you to know is this:
Companies like ADVANTECH support the OSM standard to bring you these benefits in the embedded computing world. Combined with GLYN-SUPPORT, you are betting on a successful long-term future for your projects.
