Intel shows production version of Stellarton Atom

Chipmaker Intel today brought out a new, configurable Atom processor series, the E600C. Introduced in September as the Stellarton, It includes an Altera Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and will allow a wider range of task-specific chips brought to market faster without having to perform extensive hardware changes. The new Atom can accommodate a range of standard and user-defined I/O interfaces, high-speed connections, memory interfaces and special hardware acceleration.

The chip includes Intel's extended, seven-year-long lifecycle manufacturing support. It can be custom tailored for industrial machines, portable medical equipment, communications gear, vision system, VoIP devices, high-performance programmable logic controllers and embedded computers.

Embedded computing solutions maker Kontron already has E600C-based prototype boards, with production scheduled for the second quarter of 2011.

Bulk quantity prices range from $61 to $106. The E665CT, E645CT, E665C and E645C will arrive within two months, while the E625CT and E625C ship in the first quarter of 2011.

    I do not think Intel has learned anything from

    her competition with ARM.
