An Era of Affordability for the Custom System-on-Chip (SoC)
September 25, 2018
Now that custom electronic system design prototypes can be developed for under $20,000, it pays to explore the benefits.
As the world heads towards more than a trillion connected devices, companies are challenged to shorten development cycles and minimize costs. At the same time, they have to address design concerns, such as interoperability, security, and autonomy, which warrant custom silicon.
The good news is that there are now more hardware and software options for electronic system design than ever before, making the cost of a custom SoC more affordable.
This white paper explains the benefits of building a custom SoC, regardless of budget or expertise, and offers a real-life case study of a low-power chip that reduced the bill-of-materials costs for an oil and gas company by 80 percent.
