LAHORE - Intel Corporation has announced four unique versions of processors and two new system controller hub additions to the company's "embedded" business division product line-up. The new products for the Intel(r) Atom(tm) processor Z5xx series include industrial-temperature options, as well as different package-size choices better suited for in-car infotainment devices, media phones, eco- technologies and other industrial-strength applications. The low-power Intel Atom processor is behind much of Intel's growth into several new computing-related market segments, extending the popular Intel(r) architecture to embedded industries such as automotive in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), industrial control and automation, and media phones. These products also enable market segment innovation through advancements in integrated 2D and 3D graphics, video acceleration and support for multiple operating systems including several versions of Windows and Linux. "With the addition of these new products, we can bring the benefits of Intel processors to new applications, devices and customers who develop products used in unconstrained thermal environments with low-power in mind," said Doug Davis, vice president, Digital Enterprise Group and general manager, Embedded and Communications Group, Intel. "Meeting the needs of embedded environments and new market segments will play a large role in delivering the connectivity and functionality necessary as the number of devices connecting to the embedded Internet is expected to grow to an estimated 15b devices by 2015," Davis added, citing a January report by IDC's John Gantz titled "The Embedded Internet: Methodology and Findings".
