Embedded Single Board Computers (SBC) and Computer Boards for Industrial Applications
This section contains a wide range of Embedded Single Board Computers (SBC) that do not meet a specific standard form factor like PC104 (PC/104), CompactPCI of VME, but a solution to the most diverse applications in industrial automation and robotics. An embedded computer is part of a system designed for specific control functions in a larger system, often with real-time computing constraints. It has been embedded as a part of a complete device, often including mechanical parts.
The main feature of Embedded Single Board Computers (SBC) is that it handles specific tasks. For example, machine or robot designers particular tasks or processes, can easily be optimized, improve the reliability and performance and reduce the cost by the use of commercially available products which are produced in large numbers.

Applications with Embedded Single Board Computers (SBC)
Embedded computers are used in various fields of Information Technology (IT) and industrial automation.
As for telecommunication systems where embedded computers are used in telephone exchange, Ethernet networking, routers, switches and bridges for wired and wireless communications (WiFi).
Medical devices are increasingly equipped with embedded systems for processing signals from digital sensors, images and sounds.
Also in transport means such as cars, trains and airplanes are embedded single board computers no longer to be ignored. GPS and analog and digital I / O signals are processed by embedded computer systems as efficiently as possible with energy to go and so to reduce pollution and to ensure greater security.
Renewable Energy is also an area of industry where Single Board Computers (SBC) will increasingly be applied for high efficiency.
In the industry, embedded computers will be used for manufacture of robots, machine controls and process automation.
