SoC Integration Complexity: Size Doesn't (Always) Matter

April 1st, 2021 - By Kurt Shuler

semiengineering-logo-2020Even small IoT designs can have plenty of complexity in architecture and integration.

It’s common when talking about complexity in systems-on-chip (SoCs) to haul out monster examples: application processors, giant AI chips, and the like. Breaking with that tradition, consider an internet of things (IoT) design, which can still challenge engineers with plenty of complexity in architecture and integration. This complexity springs from two drivers: very low power consumption, even using harvested MEMS power instead of a battery, and quick turnaround to build out a huge family of products based on a common SoC platform while keeping tight control on development and unit costs.
