Many COM Express modules are designed for a life cycle of five years or longer. However, from a system level perspective, the modular design of a COM Express module and carrier board solution allows for easy upgrades to take advantage of the latest processor or memory capabilities, which can extend the useful life well beyond five years.
The carrier board only needs to be revised if a new technology or interface is required at some point in the future. The redesign of a carrier board, if required, is much faster and more economical than the comparable cost of designing a completely new system. Call us to discuss your application.
