A “System-on-Chip” (SoC) is an integrated circuit that encompasses all the essential components of a complete electronic or computer system on a single chip. These components typically include a central processing unit (CPU), memory interfaces, input/output devices, and secondary storage interfaces, often alongside additional features like radio modems and graphics processing units. SoCs have become a fundamental technology in the realm of portable and embedded devices, as they enable the miniaturization of complex systems, reduce power consumption, and enhance cost-effectiveness. The integration of multiple functions into a single chip simplifies the design and manufacturing process while delivering high performance and compact size.

SoC plays a crucial role in creating devices capable of wireless communication for factory automation. By incorporating the necessary computing power, hardware interfaces, analog and digital peripherals, and a 2.4 GHz radio transceiver, an SoC enables the implementation of IO-Link Wireless protocols in a compact and efficient manner. This integration simplifies the design process for device manufacturers, allowing them to bring IO-Link Wireless-capable products to market quickly, which is essential for addressing the demands of Industry 4.0 and enhancing flexibility and adaptivity in manufacturing processes.
