With the availability of 90-nanometer process technology, system architects certainly have a new capability for optimized system-on-chip (SoC) solutions.
SoCs no panacea for comms infrastructure
News & Analysis  
10/18/2002   Post a comment
Like "military intelligence," the "comms infrastructure system-on-chip" is almost, but not quite, an oxymoron. Unlike battery-powered handsets, the room-size cellular basestations and telecom switching stations that make up the real comms infrastructure have scant need for highly integrated, small-form-factor, low-power ICs.
