*Onboard eMMC memory:
The Pi-Tron can be obtained with two different types of Compute Module. One without eMMC memory, the "Lite" version, and the "eMMC" version. The notable difference between the Lite and the eMMC Compute Module is, that the "Lite" version can only boot and use the SD card and the "eMMC" version can only boot and use the eMMC memory, but not the SD card.

For more information on this topic, see section Write Image to onboard eMMC, topic Pi-Tron with and without eMMC.
