A typical SoC consists of:

  • a microcontroller, microprocessor or digital signal processor (DSP) core – multiprocessor SoCs (MPSoC) having more than one processor core
  • memory blocks including a selection of ROM, RAM, EEPROM and flash memory
  • timing sources including oscillators and phase-locked loops
  • peripherals including counter-timers, real-time timers and power-on reset generators
  • external interfaces, including industry standards such as USB, FireWire, Ethernet, USART, SPI
  • analog interfaces including ADCs and DACs
