ARM; Custom chips for dummies

March 09, 2018 // By Brian Underdahl
This 30-page white paper introduces the technology behind custom system chips (SoCs) and application specific circuits (ASICs), highlights the benefits of the use of such ICs and provides a high-level view of how a company can get started. The paper provides knowledge and context needed to talk to suppliers, circuit design partners and internal engineering teams. The paper walks through the process of creating a custom SoC and identifies where help is available, if needed. It also discusses how custom SoCs can reduce the overall bill of materials while protecting products from copying.
