Many products once designed using 8-bit microcontrollers with external digital and analog circuitry are being re-designed using SoC devices." The term "System-on-Chip" encompasses a broad range of products that include both custom devices, as well as a new class of SoCs that are field programmable, and have their functionality determined by the user. In addition to a substantial decrease in part count and product cost, these new SoC devices offer significant design flexibility.
