ASIC Chip vs FPGA: Which is Better?

ASIC Chip stands for Application Specific Integrated Circuit which is designed for one specific purpose while FPGA is short for Field Programmable Gate Array which can be programmed and reprogrammed to work as per intended design. Comparison between ASIC Chip and FPGA   An ASIC chip cannot change and will function the same throughout its […]

System on a Chip (SOC) or CPU? Which is Better?

System on a Chip or SOC is an electronic circuit board responsible for integrating all the necessary components in electronic and computer systems. The components consist of memory, a central processing unit, wireless radios for Wi-Fi, GPS, FM radio, Bluetooth, and 2G/3G/LTE, and USB controller. These are permanently fastened into the motherboard. While compact, fast, […]
