Soc Products In IoT {System On Chip}

SoC Products:

  • A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated circuit (IC) that can be programmed in the field after manufacture.
  • FPGAs are similar in principle to, but have vastly wider potential application than, programmable read-only memory (PROM) chips.
  • FPGAs are used by engineers in the design of specialized ICs that can later be produced hard-wired in large quantities for distribution to computer manufacturers and end users.
  • Afield-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a designer after manufacturing – hence “field-programmable“.
  • The FPGA configuration is generally specified using ahardware description language (HDL), similar to that used for an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC).

FPGAs contain an array of programmable logic blocks, and a hierarchy of reconfigurable interconnects that allow the blocks to be “wired together”, like many logic gates that can be inter-wired in different configurations. Logic blocks can be configured to perform complex combinational functions, or merely simple logic gateslike AND and XOR. In most FPGAs, logic blocks also include memory elements, which may be simple flip-flops or more complete blocks of memory.

An FPGA can be used to solve any problem which is computable. Specific applications of FPGAs include

metal detection and a growing range of other areas.

The AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU), formerly known as Fusion, is the marketing term for a series of 64-bit microprocessors from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), designed to act as a central processing unit (CPU) and graphics accelerator unit (GPU) on a single chip.

AMD announced the first generation APUs, Llano for high-performance and Brazos for low-power devices in January 2011. The second generation Trinity for high-performance and Brazos-2 for low-power devices were announced in June 2012. The third generation Kaveri for high performance devices was launched in January 2014, while Kabini and Temash for low-power devices were announced in the summer of 2013.

Compute Unit:

A compute unit is a stream multiprocessor. Each compute unit has several processing elements (ALU/stream processor). For example, a compute unit of a HD 5000 series GPU has 80 processing elements.
