System-on-a-Chip (SoC) technology was designed for applications that require all components implemented at the chip level. This refers to integrating all components of an electronic system into a single integrated circuit (also considered a “chip”). This chip can contain a variety of signals including digital, analog, mixed-signal, and often RF functions, and does it all one single chip.

The System-on-a-Chip is determined by the package and assembly challenges that you face. SoC technology fabricates various chips and components that make up an entire electronic product, on a single chip. 

Benefits of System-on-a-Chip:

  • Smaller footprint and space requirements
  • Higher performance due to increased amount of circuits on the chip
  • Greater system reliability
  • Can translate into lower cost for the end user
  • Lower power requirements

Applications for System-on-a-Chip: 

  • Digital Signal Processors
  • Embedded Systems
  • Video Decoders
  • Mobile Phones
  • Cable and Satellite TV Set Top Boxes
  • Portable Media Devices
