Prototypes are important building blocks for product developers to support a product concept from the design phase to its series production. Here, it is primarily a matter of converting a concept functionally into a design, verifying it and working out optimization potential. Even with all the possibilities of today's "simulations", real sample setups are still needed to convert the theory into real results.

Sponsored content by congatec GmbHUnlocking the Full Potential of Edge Workload Consolidation Embedded processor cores and expenses incurred are two variables that are indirectly proportional: A higher number of embedded processor cores results in reduced costs as the cores begin consolidating the workload by allocating the tasks to a single edge computing platform. While this cost-efficient measure successfully causes a decrease in the overall number of distributed embedded systems, it can only be achieved by accurately balancing out the computing cores and their respective virtual machines. This is where computer-on-modules come in to play: When paired with real-time virtual machines, Computer-on Modules help designers realize this balance proficiently.
