While we agree that integration may not always be technically best path for RF apps, we disagree that term SoC is under-defined or marketing label. SoC refers to a chip that includes processor subsystem, which is not only the CPU, but also some memory (ROM/RAM) and peripherals, basically everything needed to at least boot the CPU. It normally also includes significant 3rd party IP content
