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

@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

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
