ADVANTECH has launched a web portal dedicated to supporting customers that are developing SOM solutions.
The ‘X86 Design-In Zone’ (x86-diz.advantech.com.tw) provides an interactive environment for enhanced communication between developers and Advantech's expert Design-In support team.
With the ability to help at any stage of a project, from evaluation and hardware development to near-final fine-tuning, Advantech has experienced professionals in place to lend any level of support and technical consulting that is needed to get the project completed in a fast and efficient manner.
Available support includes design guides, application notes, detailed design techniques, tips and how-to advice, engineering drawings and more.
The portal also includes an extensive SOM developer knowledgebase and FAQ/Q&A area, all centered on the questions (and answers) developers ask when implementing a SOM solution.
Also included is Advantech's IP ready database with existing circuit designs that customers can choose from for faster application development with reduced risk.
For customers exploring solutions there is a 'Design Concept Inquiry Service' to help match an application idea to a solution. When a customer submits a question or inquiry, chances are that Advantech’s staff of SOM engineering professionals has seen a similar issue before or has enough experience to recommend a solution that can immediately help the customer.
This knowledge sharing is a fundamental element of how the Design-In Zone adds value to SOM solution development.
