Ask Slashdot: When Should You Call Hardware a ‘SoC’? – Slashdot

Slashdot reader Prahjister knows what a system on a chip is. But that’s part of the problem:
I recently started hearing the term SoC at work when referring to digital signage hardware. This has really triggered me…. It is like when I heard people refer to a PC as a CPU.

I tried to speak to my colleagues and dissuade them from using this term in this manner with no luck. Am I wrong trying to dissuade them for this?
Maybe another question would be: Are there technical malapropisms that drive you crazy? Share your own thoughts and experiences in the comments.

And when should you call hardware a ‘SoC’?
