Can someone explain what arpeggios are for me and how they help in making solos?

my explanation of them:

arpeggios are taking the notes of a chord(A minor for example) and playing them separately in any given pattern. They help with solos in the sense that they are melodic in their appeal to the underlying progression.

Don't know if that's correct, but it's how I've always thought of arpeggios.
