Introduction
  • There are various latest technologies, standard
    products are being released. Many companies are
    continually under pressure to keep up. They are
    competing in the market with the least and
    fastest invention. One common question we see
    come up in engineering seminars is whether a
    buyer should select a SoC (System on Chip) or an
    SBC (Single Board Computer) for their project,
    and all the trade-offs of that choice. There are
    so many advantages and disadvantages to each that
    there is no informal answer.

Difference Between SOC (System on Chip) and
Single Board Computer
What is a System on Chip (SoC)
  • A system on chip incorporates with a lot of
    system components into a single Si chip.
  • A System on chip generally comprises of memory.
  • A range of peripherals such as UART, SPI, USB,
    I2C, PCI, SATA along with an application
    processor.
  • A SoC (system-on-a-chip) is a small chip with all
    the required electronic components and circuits
    in a given system.
  • like a smartphone or portable computer, on a
    single IC (integrated circuit).

What is a System on Chip (SoC)?
  • A system on chip in a sound detecting device
    might include an ADC, an audio receiver,
    memory, a microprocessor, and I/O logic control
    of a user on a single chip.
  • The applications of a SoC technology involve in
    a small, complex consumer devices and also some
    devices which have more memory and processing
    power than a normal desktop computer.
  • System on chip (SoC) based nano robots might
    perform as programmable antibodies to fend-off
    earlier undying diseases.

What is a System on Chip (SoC)?
  • SoC chip based video devices might be fixed in
    the brains of blind people, letting them to get
    and SoC audio devices might let deaf people to
    receive.
  • SoC is growing along with other technologies
    like SOI (silicon-on-insulator).
  • It can deliver increased clock speeds while
    decreasing the power spent by a microchip.

Difference Between SOC (System on Chip) and
Single Board Computer
Advantages of SoC
  • The aim of using a system on chip in a design is
    to be capable to construct a complete system with
    a single chip and minimal external components.
  • The main purpose of using a SOC in design
    includes the following steps.
  • Size The size of a SOC is small and it includes
    a lot of features and functions.

Advantages of SoC
  • Flexibility In terms of chip size, power and
    form factor, it is very tough to beat the
  • suppleness that a system on chip agrees a
    design.
  • Cost Efficient This is accurate especially for
    application specific SoCs like a video
    code, since
    the other is to implement it in software, that
    can be an expensive in terms of effort and time.
  • High Volume System on chips are countless if you
    have a high capacity product since it makes it
    easier to defend the resources and cost of an
    engineering.

Disadvantages of SoC
  • The disadvantages of SoC includes the following
  • Time Consuming The designing process of SoC can
    take between 6 to 12 months
  • Limitations of Resource If you are imperfect in
    resources or if you dont have too much skill in
    the field, a system on chip is maybe not a good
    fit
  • Lower volume If you are designing a low volume
    type of product, there may be changes that are
    more appropriate, if you need a highly dedicated
    hardware. You may be better off leveraging
    hardware from somebody else and using your time
    resources for application software

Difference Between SOC (System on Chip) and
Single Board Computer
What is a Single Board Computer?
  • A single board computer or SBC is a whole
    computer constructed on a single circuit board,
    with memory, microprocessor, I/O and also other
    features needed for a functional computer.
  • These were finished as development systems for
    educational systems or as embedded computer
    controllers.
  • Different kinds of portable or home computers are
    integrated onto a single PCB (printed circuit
    board).

Difference Between SOC (System on Chip) and
Single Board Computer
What is a Single Board Computer?
  • Not like a desktop PC, single board computers
    frequently do not trust on increase slots for
    peripheral purposes. 
  • Some single board computers are finished to plug
    into a backplane for system expansion. 
  • Single board computers have been
    constructed using an extensive range of
    microprocessors.

What is a Single Board Computer?
  • Simple designs, like built by computer hobbyists,
    frequently use static RAM low-cost 8/16 bit
    processors.
  • Other kinds, like blade servers, comprise all the
    memory performance of a processor of a server
    computer in a solid space saving format.

Advantages of SBC
  • The advantages of SBC include the following
  • Easy to Use The using of single board computer
    is very easy
  • Verified Hardware One simple mistake while
    designing a SoC board can be very expensive.
    These boards decrease the risk.
  • Adaptable Ability to modify a board means you
    are giving for just what you need

Difference Between SOC (System on Chip) and
Single Board Computer
Advantages of SBC
  • Single Source  BOM of a simple system on chip
    board can still be in the 100s. Single board
    computer makes it informal for logistics
  • Time to Market Designing of SBC is much faster
    than the SoC

Difference Between SOC (System on Chip) and
Single Board Computer
Disadvantages of SBC
  • The disadvantages of SBC include the following
  • Price If the product is in the high capacity
    category, then it may make more logic to do your
    individual design and validate the engineering
    costs
  • Flexibility If you want a lot of customization
    on a given system board computer, it will be
    valuable to deliberate doing a system on chip
    design

Disadvantages of SBC
  • Knowledge If you plan to use the same SoC for
    several products, then spending the time and
    determination to develop deep understanding of
    the invention is worth it

Main Differences between Soc and SBC
  • The main differences between SOC (System on a
    Chip) and SBC (Single Board Computer) include the
    following.
  • A system on chip comprises of various functional
    units on a single silicon chip. Frequently
    numerous   processors peripherals.
  • A single board computer is a complete personal
    computer on a single printed circuit board (PCB),
    RAM, CPU, non-volatile memory.
  • SoC and SBC are entirely different to each other.
    Generally system on chip is a significant
    component of the single board computer.

Difference Between SOC (System on Chip) and
Single Board Computer
Main Differences between Soc and SBC
  • The source is a one type Integrated Circuit,
    which houses all the electronics system elements
    a single microchip.
  • A system on chip can typically have the
    microprocessor, on-chip memory, peripheral
    interfaces, Input/output logic control, etc.
  • That are usually established inside a computer
    system.
  • SoC widely used across the embedded industry due
    to their features like the small form factor,
    computational quality low power consumption.

Main Differences between Soc and SBC
  • Single board computers are standard products that
    can be used to advance the end-products for a
    different of industries.
  • Single board computers come along with inbuilt
    hardware and software, which includes SoCs, power
    requirements, memory.
  • Connectivity interfaces and real world multimedia
    like USB, CAN, UART, HDMI, SDIO, Ethernet, MMC,
    display, Analog Audio, etc.

Difference Between SOC (System on Chip) and
Single Board Computer
Conclusion
  • The main difference between SOC and SBC is that
    the SOC has multiple functional units on one
    piece of silicon. Often multiple processors and
    peripherals. Where as SBC is a complete PC on a
    single PCB. CPU, RAM, non-volatile memory(HDD or
    flash). More and more manufacturers are using
    SoCs instead of having individual components.
