Regardless of Moore's "law" that computers keep getting faster, the speed of computers for users keeps getting slower as bloated software, graphics processing, and high virus scanning overhead consume resources faster than processors can be added to the CPU chips. With Intel's purchase of McAfee (approved by the FTC in late December), is there any hope of a generation of computers in which processors can be allocated to virus protection, to graphics, and still leave some unused processing power to allow for a very responsive user experience (to do "work")?

To answer your question, there are many other applications, In vehicle infotainment, display signage, games or casino machines, even commercial unmanned vehicles, due to it's nature COM or Computer-On-Module is always custom. The COM board has no IO connectors, the carrier card contains a subset or full set of IO. The concept lends itself to scalability, a carrier can take a range of COM boards whether low power, low performance or full performance. The concept also takes complexity away form the system design, as the carrier can be as simple or as complex as the system design requires. Please mail me if you would like to discuss further.
