The Internet of Things (IoT) is the main driving force for the development of fifth-generation (5G) communications. IoT consists of sensors, wireless networks, and radio-frequency identification (RFID). However, the embedded system (ES) controls the operations and data processing of the IoT system. As a common sensing layer control unit of IoT, single-chip microcomputer is not only the most basic component of IoT, but also the first step to expand the technology and application of IoT. Microcomputers generally take the central processing unit (CPU) as the core, and some contain other functional chips. Microprocessor is characterized by micro, low power consumption, and low main frequency. ES is an integrated computer hardware and software system designed with specific functions, or the special-purpose microcomputer system mounted within a device for control. The defining features of ES are purpose and pertinence. Every ES is developed for special application occasions with specific functions. Wireless serial data transmission system (DTS) is widely used in modern communication systems, especially in industrial control, data transmission, and data acquisition.

The new System on a Chip (SoC) platform will provide multicore heterogeneous CPU, digital signal processor (DSP), and function specific accelerator core. This is essential to meet throughput requirements, 5G deployment delay, and flexibility. More functions will be integrated into a single SoC to deal with multiple traffic types such as payload control, plane traffic, front-end processing, and user scheduling. The more powerful the SOC is, the deeper the combination of embedded system and 5G is. 5G SOC integration mode is the development direction of the 5G chip. The embedded processor includes an embedded microprocessor (MPC), an embedded DSP, SOC, and a micro controller unit (MCU). The chip functions should be developed based on a development platform, namely, the simulation development system. Users may not be aware of the capacity limitation of the wireless communication system and send considerable amounts of data through the system, which increases the traffic load or incurs congestion. Hence, wireless communication with digital processors should have higher efficiency and faster response. The wireless communication system can be easily updated through the remote software download of relevant programs, so the application of the processor array to the base station becomes a trendy development of the processing platform. Meanwhile, due to the power and volume constraints of terminals, the high computing power processor (i.e., scalar processor and vector processor) will become the future trend.
