What is POM?
A Product on Module is a complete, form factor development platform with a powerful processor, memory, power, interfaces, and software. The PoM is a ready to deploy solution that can be taken to market quickly.
The AM437x Product on Module enables development of high-quality, high-reliability solutions while ensuring an optimized product development life-cycle.
PoM vs SOM
A quick look at why a product designer should look at using a Product on Module (PoM) for faster product deployment.
The AM437x Product on Module helps product designers to realize a fully customized assembly, complete with interfaces and small form factor without the effort of a ground-up electronic design. This will ensure reduced developmental costs while simultaneously shortening time-to-market and technical risk.
Mistral provides custom design services for your development around the AM437x Product on Module ensuring a cost-effective, custom solution within a narrow timeline.
