More Than Just CPU Performance—Criteria for Choosing an x86-based Embedded Computer
When in the market for an x86-based embedded computer, most system engineers only take hardware requirements such as CPU performance into consideration. Unlike RISC-based computers, which are designed for specific industrial applications and minimize power consumption, x86-based computers are often used to perform more complicated tasks in a greater variety of industrial applications. As a result, choosing an x86-based computer for industrial applications is not so simple. By incorporating the simple guidelines discussed in this white paper into your selection process, you will not only save yourself initial headache but nip potential problems in the bud.
