Soc is an integrated circuit (IC) that integrates all components of a computer or otherelectronic system into a single chip. It may contain digital, analog, mixed-signal, and often radio-frequency functions—all on a single chipsubstrate. SoCs are very common in the mobile electronics market because of their low power consumption. A typical application is in the area of embedded systems.
A typical SoC consists of:
A bus – either proprietary or industry-standard such as the AMBA bus from ARM Holdings – connects these blocks. DMAcontrollers route data directly between external interfaces and memory, bypassing the processor core and thereby increasing the data throughput of the SoC.
An embeded system is a computer system with a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system, often with real-time computing constraints. It is embedded as part of a complete device often including hardware and mechanical parts
