Not sure between Single Board Computer or Core Module?

The choice of whether to use a complete Single Board Computer or stripped back Core Module, to deliver the required user experience, is one of the first decisions to be made when creating the human-machine interface for any given application. Whichever route you opt for, the most important specifications are:

  • The interfaces provided for sensors and actuators - How many are there, and are they the right ones
  • The connectivity options for the network and Internet.
  • Support – which can make a big difference to how long it takes to get your project up and running:
    - Is there a well-supported and robust board support package – how much other help is available for the software developer?

To help you compare their relative strengths you can access our blog on CPU choice our get in touch to talk with our display and embedded technology experts.
