See below image for the Chipset block information technology diagram. A chipset is a group of interdependent motherboard chips or integrated circuits that control the flow of data and instructions between the central processing unit (CPU) or microprocessor and external devices. A chipset controls external buses, memory cache and some peripherals. A CPU is unable to function without impeccable chipset timing.
This blockchain chip can replace an existing CPU and features a core optimized for blockchain technology as well as the Internet of Things. SC-1000 is a 32-bit RISC-V Blockchain Core featuring hardware wallet blocks and CPU for use on standard IoT devices.
A Brief History of Chipsets. Instead of a bunch of chips, motherboards came with a northbridge and a southbridge, which consisted of just two chips with very specific duties and purposes. The northbridge chip was known as such because it was located at the top, or northern, portion of the motherboard.
