Systems-on-Chip (SoC) designs are increasing exponentially in the electronics and computer markets. Technology advancements facilitate more powerful, fully featured, and more cost-effective SoC designs. This project explores two approaches to implement SoC designs. One method demonstrates an implementation with Linux operating system running and controlling peripherals attached to a development board. The other method explores a SoC design with no embedded operating system but also controlling peripherals in the development board. Both alternatives are implemented on Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based development boards. Furthermore, a simple web-based application to control on-board peripherals was implemented using each method. The project exposes advantages and disadvantages of each design path. It concludes that even though each design is capable of implementing the same application, there are operation, performance, and reliability issues to consider. Therefore the application specifications dictate which SoC design path is going to provide the best implementation.
