Is an ASIC and SoC, or vice versa?

So -- based on my blog -- would you say that ASICs are a subset of SoCs -- or SoCs a subset of ASICs?

As tasty as they sound, I'm a fan of The Mighty Sprout

@max:... all we could afford was constants

:-) i trully hope that with moore's law you could afford yourself some delicious variables someday :)

@rob18767: My view, is that if the system can't run games, it's not an embedded system ;)

I love it -- I'll be using thsi line in my embedded systems talk at ESC Brazil at the end of August!

@betajet: Yes indeed, a magic spell called DEC RADIX-50 which encoded 26 upper-case letters plus 10 digits plus a few punctuation marks into a number from 0-39, and then multiplied the first character by 1600, the second by 40, the third by 1, and added them all up.  So why "RADIX-50" instead of 40?  Well, we PDP-11 dudes always preferred thinking in octal :-)

I remember RADIX-50 -- we used to use it on little GENRAD PCB functional testers (I think they were the 2225 testers) -- I thought the whole concept of RADIC-50 was absolutely brilliant.

@alex_m1: ...nowhere to store variables...

At least you had variables -- we used to dream of variables -- all we could afford was constants -- but we didn;t complain -- we considered ourselves to be lucky :-)

@maxthemagnificent  Be there or be square!  Love to chat on the chat about whether we should bring back the name "Embedded Systems Conference?" After all, teenagers are wearing old spice these days so retro is in!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
