Radio-On-Chip For Mobile (ROCm or RoC)

Definition - What does Radio-On-Chip For Mobile (ROCm or RoC) mean?

Radio-on-chip for Mobile (ROCm or RoC) is a type of system-on-a-chip (SoC) appliance that integrates the functions of a receiver, amplifier and power management capabilities in a single silicon chip. Because of its minute size, it can be easily embedded on small, portable devices, making it a very useful technology, particularly in the areas of computer networking and mobility.

Techopedia explains Radio-On-Chip For Mobile (ROCm or RoC)

ROCm was the focus of a great deal of research and investment in the late 1990s to early 2000s, when this technology became essential to the development of next-generation devices. True to expectations, the RoC technology significantly contributed to the current capability of cellphones to double as wireless Internet devices.

The following primary RoC system specifications make it ideal for its intended purpose:

  • Size of the chip
  • Low consumption of power
  • Integrated design

It has expedited the ubiquity of wireless Web connectivity for computers and compact devices because the single-chip device can act as a wireless access point (WAP) when incorporated with modern mobile gadgets, such as e-book readers, smartbooks, smartphones, tablets and smart grid devices.
