EDM Standard

EDM is an open standard under the Creative Commons Share Alike license and is the first true x86/ARM Cross platform pin-to-pin compatible standard covering a wide spectrum of CPU architectures ranging from low power efficient ARM Cortex A7 SoC’s all the way up to 64 bit multicore processor modules.

EDM System on Modules (SoM’s) are a versatile small form factor computer module providing a flexible solution to OEM’s that require a scalable low power modular computing solution.

Why should you choose EDM Modules?

EDM modules provide complete building blocks including memory, boot flash, power sequencing, CPU power supplies, Ethernet, wireless communication interfaces and graphic engine cores on the module.

EDM modules are used in conjunction with carrier boards that implement application specific features such as audio codecs, display and touch solutions and communication and control interfaces to external devices.

The EDM specifications and design guides for carrier boards as well as the schematics for the Evalution boards are completely open-source.

Development Startkits

Kickstart your project development cycle with our plug and play development startkits that come pre-loaded with working software and all tools to assist you to validate performance and explore additional possibilities without the need to invest a huge amount of time and resources upfront.

Custom Carrier board Design

Customers can design their own carrier board using the freely available schematic design files and leverage on the available software source code that comes standard with every EDM Module and therefore bringing a custom designed solution to market using a very short design cycle and reduced engineering risks.

TechNexion offers custom tailored carrier board design and manufacturing services where our expertise as co-founder of the EDM standard will assist you to ensure your design is fully compatible and future upgrade proof while moving to next generation EDM modules.
