CoM scalability

It is often useful for manufacturers to be able to offer products with different levels of performance and price. This is where the TX module standard comes into its own. With one single baseboard hardware design, embedded engineers can produce a range of pin- and software-compatible products. Ka-Ro introduced the TX CoM standard over six years ago. Since then, the Mainboard-7 baseboard has been the development environment for all TX modules, underlining a long-term product and family strategy. All the TX modules can be used on the Development Kit  which enables great scalability and flexibility.

Reduce to the max – the product philosophy

The philosophy behind the TX CoM family is to reduce a CoM down to the absolute minimum of components. In doing so, application designers and engineers using CoMs can achieve maximum flexibility. TX CoM modules solely feature the processor plus memory and the power supply. Any additional functions can be added to the base board. 

Longevity for OEM’s is Key

This focus on CoMs with a minimum number of components is on the one hand the key to very competitive pricing, on the other hand it ensures long-term availability. While processor manufacturers like Freescale offer a long-term availability of 10 to 15 years, this must also apply to any further components integrated onto a module or these must be available via second sourcing and without any necessary software alterations. If these components are integrated on a module, as is the case with many other manufacturers, this long-term availability is endangered and not possible to guarantee.
