Simplifies Design & Production
A SoM, one step above an SoC, incorporates connectivity, multimedia and display, GPIO, operating system, and others in a single module. Although the industry has been traditionally using SODIMM modules (such as push-connector modules, small outline dual in-line memory module), soldered SoM modules are rapidly gaining ground. Solder modules are less expensive than their SODIMM counterparts because they are easier to manage, test in production, and allow for better economies of scale.
SoM-based designs are usually scalable to achieve a fully customized electronics assembly in terms of interfaces and form factors. SoMs can be replaced or upgraded within a carrier board. Some advantages of the SoM approach over an SoC development include cost savings, reduced market risk, reduced customer design requirements, and footprint. The only limitation with an SoM, when compared to the ground-up SoC design, is that there are fewer pins in an SoM.

Benefit by using QS module family
The QS module family has very compact dimensions. They include a complete embedded System on Module with processor, PMIC, RAM and flash memory.
Because of the very dense packaging on the top side, there are no components on the bottom side of the module, cut-outs on the base board not required. The pin compatible family concept provides all important interfaces needed for embedded designs, e.g., USB, Gigabit-Ethernet, display and many serial interfaces.
Flexibility, high performance and easy integration
All signal connections located at the module edges, allowing easy optical inspection during production. The modules can be assembled by automatic pick & place machines without any mechanical assembly work necessary.
The pin-optimized QS concept enables the use of a simple, cost-effective 2-layer base board.
A development kit with schematics and bill of materials is available to support a quick evaluation and project start.
QSX vs. QS
- QSX is a QS module enlarged by 1 mm all around.
- The size hereby increased from 27 mm square to 29 mm square.
- In each corner this gives additional space for a total of 8 further pads which are used for PCIe and USB3.
- The inner 27 mm x 27 mm QS area remains identical, providing full compatibility.
