Powering the OEM/ODM Relationship
May 04, 2021
Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) of embedded computing systems play a key role in the product design chain, filling a gap for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) when specific computational performance or system features are required.
What OEMs may not realize, is that their ODM partners are constantly striving to deliver ahead of market needs, competing by readying features and performance improvements before the OEMs realize the necessity to their systems. Whether developing a specialized component which may not be available off-the-shelf, or customizing an existing product for end-user performance – ODMs work hard to drive new efficiency, creativity, and competitive advantage in product development.
This white paper covers five key value-adds OEMs can consider when evaluating their ODM partner relationship for embedded computing design and leadership.
