A system on a chip, or SoC, is a complete computer system on a chip. They are small, self-contained, energy efficient and have low heat output. A SoC potentially includes all the core capabilities of a server such as software, a microprocessor, graphics processing unit, networking chips, memory and data storage. The following are potential applications of the technology.
Mobile DevicesMobile devices such as smart phones. SoC may integrate analog, 3G and WiFi capabilities.
Data CentersDeployment of server-class SoC known as microservers in data centers to save space, power consumption and heat.
MicrodatacenterA hardware assembly that puts multiple microservers into one box together with power, cooling, networking and security features that collectively resemble a tiny data center.
CloudUsing microservers as a pool of computing resources for a cloud platform.
SupercomputingConstructing high performance computers using a large number of microservers as component parts.
Products & ServicesIntegration of computers into everyday things to improve products and services. For example, a bicycle with an integrated navigation and safety system.
Machines & InfrastructureBuilding software intelligence into machines, infrastructure and transportation. For example, shipping boxes that transmit their location and status to improve supply chains and reduce shrinkage.
