ARM, x86, and power are the major processor architectures used for SOM modules. The ARM processor architecture holds the majority of the market share and is projected to exhibit a high growth rate. Manufacturers adopt ARM-based processors for their modules and boards owing to their lesser complexity compared to x86 processors. ARM Holdings Corporation is the designer of ARM architecture and provides the license to other manufacturers for building their own processors. Major manufacturers providing ARM-based SoM are Digi International, congatec, and Kontron. The popularity of ARM-based processors in the System on Module market has rapidly increased owing to their single cycle computing with reduced instruction sets. AMD and NXP Semiconductors are the major suppliers of ARM architecture-based processors for the global SoM market.

Power architecture-based modules are less adopted as compared to x86 and ARM-based processors. IBM designs them and they use Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) platform like ARM processors. IBM and NXP are some of the major manufacturers of Power architecture-based processors for SoM. An important feature of power-based SoM is that they can add scalability in the system without adding additional hardware, unlike x86 processors. Microsys is one of the manufacturers providing SoMs based on power architecture.
