Using a SECO SOM or SBC platform as a starting point, validated schematics, circuit board artwork, and operating system source code is modified to enable application-specific features and optimize cost. As compared to fully custom designs, modified COTS accelerates schedules from kickoff to production while minimizing development cost and risk.

The toughest environments, rugged handling, and specialized use of commercial tablets in industrial, military, and medical applications often lead to retrofit casings, hacked-in accessories, non-optimal performance, and rapid device demise. 

SECO offers a variety of off-the-shelf HMI products, and has extensive expertise in the design and production of rugged handheld devices and tablets. Any feature of our off-the-shelf products can be modified to enable tightly integrated, optimally performing tablet devices. See the rugged tablets page to learn about the range of modifications available- including the case, display, electronics, software, and more.
