The BCM2835 is a SoC (System-on-a-chip) designed by Broadcom. It is used on the Raspberry Pi, where it is easily visible as the black chip in the center of the board. The chip contains many of the components of a traditional computer, such as a CPU, memory, and a GPU.

The BCM2835 is actually not specific to the Raspberry Pi and is used in at least one other consumer device (the Roku 2)[1].
