COM - Computer On Modules

This section contains details on our range of Computer-On-Modules from Kontron and MEN Mikro.

Computer on Modules (COMs) are highly integrated component SBCs that support system expansion and application-specific customization. The CPU module delivers the core functionality while all of the application-specific features are designed into the baseboard creating a semi-custom embedded pc solution.

We provide a wide range of COMs following different standards - below is a brief compare/contrast of the various technologies.
