Ideal Small Form Factor Choices Require Consideration of both Technical and Strategic Options

Embedded systems are by nature diverse and ubiquitous. Controlling production lines and rail systems, enabling high resolution medical imaging, or facilitating in-vehicle entertainment systems – these high performance applications are just a few examples of how indispensable computing systems span all aspects of modern life and business. Understandably, the design process is becoming increasingly complex. Connected embedded systems must often support specific interfaces required by end-use applications, handle extreme temperature ranges, and deliver low power consumption with high performance in remote, rugged deployments.
