The idea of all Open Standard Modules™ is to create a new, future proof and versatile standard for small-size, low-cost embedded computer modules, combining the following key characteristics:
- Completely machine processible during soldering, assembly and testing
- different possible packages for direct PCB soldering without connector
- Pre-defined soft- and hardware interfaces
- Open-Source in soft- and hardware
The Open Standard Module™ specification allows developing, producing and distributing embedded modules for the most popular MCU32, ARM and x86 architectures. For a growing number of IoT applications this standard helps to combine the advantages of modular embedded computing with increasing requirements regarding costs, space and interfaces.
