Intrinsyc Technologies Product Selection Guide


Thinking of​​ Intrinsyc​​ for​​ your new product?​​ Intrinsyc’s​​ Open-Q™ platforms​​ cover the diverse performance range of​​ applications​​ within the​​ IoT (Internet of Things) and connected device​​ markets. Here’s a guide​​ to​​ our​​ collection of​​ Open-Q™​​ System on Modules (SOM)​​ and​​ Single​​ Board​​ Computer (SBC), based on Qualcomm® chipsets,​​ that will help you in​​ making a sound and​​ confident​​ selection​​ for your product.

One of the foremost benefits of​​ Intrinsyc’s​​ Open-Q™​​ modules​​ is​​ their​​ production ready​​ design​​ paired​​ with a feature rich Board Support Package (BSP).​​ This results in a​​ shortened time to market, lowered development risks​​ and​​ costs,​​ and reduced production life cycle management.​​ With endless applications possible for each​​ module, it​​ can be​​ difficult to select​​ one​​ that​​ fulfills all the requirements​​ and fits the criteria​​ of​​ your​​ new product.​​ This high-level​​ target-oriented​​ guide will help​​ you​​ select the most suitable Intrinsyc​​ SOM​​ or​​ SBC​​ for your​​ new product.​​ It​​ classifies our production modules in 5 different series based on their target markets and processing capabilities. Each series​​ in turn​​ lays out​​ the​​ key selection criteria for​​ every​​ production module in an incremental manner.
