Apple granted system-on-chip shrinking patent

Apple has been granted a new patent for reducing the size of system-on-chip architectures found in Apple devices. U.S. Patent 8,334,704 notes that a computer system’s vital components — such as a processor and memory — can be fabricated onto a single microchip, shrinking what would otherwise be a large printed circuit board full of components down to a tinier size. The patent appears to be focused on coupling processors with flash memory, while providing testing options for both, and was likely filed to protect Apple’s A-series mobile processors.
