Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, foresees thriving growth in SoC test platform demand. A few decades ago, a system-on-chip was nothing more than a buzzword, but has now become a vital component in the current world of technology and electronics. SoCs have nearly unlimited and incomparable applications in real-time scenarios. They're in almost all portable electronics, including smartphones, cameras, tablets, and other wireless devices.
As such, SoC test platforms account for nearly 65% of the global automated test equipment market.
A worthy example of how a system-on-chip works is a smartphone; users don't just use a mobile phone to make and receive calls but also use it to browse the Internet, watch videos, listen to music, snap photos, play games, and send text messages. SoC combines all these components into a single chip, shrinks it to fit in the palm of the hand, and allows to be carried around as a living, breathing system in a phone.
System-on-chips (SoC) use less power and help reduce the size of electronic systems. As a result, SoCs are increasingly being deployed in a wide range of electrical products, including laptops and desktop computers. Recent announcements of technology-driven platform products indicate that there will be high deployment of SoC test platforms in the future.
