system on chip

Abbreviated SoC. A single chip containing all the electronic circuits required for a complete, working product. SoCs are similar to microcontroller technology but provide additional components. A SoC for a smartphone can include graphics, audio, video and camera processing in addition to all the microcontroller circuit. By compacting more electronic circuits onto one chip, miniaturizing and creating power efficient technology becomes feasible.
