Overcoming Challenges: Desco SmartLog Pro® 2 powered by Torizon

Ensuring the safety of working conditions in facilities is paramount, especially in electronics manufacturing. The SmartLog Pro® 2 plays a crucial role in testing for electro-static discharge, allowing staff to enter or leave the facility only when it meets the necessary criteria. To overcome the challenges associated with this process, DESCO Industries turned to Torizon and Toradex for innovative solutions.

The "containerization" concepts inherent within the Torizon OS architecture were new to our engineers and, although the learning curve was steep, it was significantly assisted by a range of resources offered by Toradex online and locally-based support.

DESCO Industries Journey with Torizon and Toradex

  • Overcoming Hardware Challenges with Toradex Colibri iMX8X System on Module

    DESCO started its journey by assessing hardware requirements, facing a significant challenge when searching for a suitable hardware solution for its project. Selecting the Toradex Colibri iMX8X System on Module, they were able to overcome this hurdle. The excellent combination of high performance, robustness, ease of access to peripherals, and support provided by Toradex, coupled with their hardware design tools, proved to be game-changing for DESCO.

  • Seamless Migration with Cost-Effective Torizon OS

    Facing the urgent need to migrate from Windows due to the end-of-life announcement of Windows CE, DESCO Industries was in search of a cost-effective and user-friendly operating system. Torizon proved to be the perfect solution, offering a ready-to-use operating system that eliminated licensing costs and had a shorter learning curve. With Torizon, DESCO ensured easy maintainability without compromising functionality.

  • Exceptional Support: A Turning Point in DESCO’s Success

    The last turning point was the support. Toradex and Torizon excelled in providing consistent lead times and exceptional after-sales support, covering both hardware and software, ensuring that any issues were promptly and effectively addressed, and allowing DESCO to focus on delivering top-notch products.

The Toradex SoMs have proven extremely reliable, and the Torizon OS has eliminated our Windows licensing costs while enabling our engineers to transition to a Linux-based, out-of-the-box OS despite having minimal experience in Ubuntu Linux.
