Manhattan Skyline: SMARC Computer on Module

SMARC is the first COM standard to be built specifically for modern ARM-Cortex system on chips (SoCs), aiming to efficiently pass along ARM benefits such as low power consumption to COTS designs.

The benefits of standardization are listed as follows:

  • Reduced cost
  • Mass production equals a better price performance ratio
  • Improved quality
  • Mass production equals higher product quality
  • Improved negotiating power for the buyer
  • Standards drive product differentiation and competition toward price and service and away from features. This gives buyer both better pricing and better support.
  • Standard architectures
  • Allows software teams to develop new applications faster with fewer people.
  • Scalable and flexible
  • More module offerings can be applied to the same platform
