Intel Launches Chips For Embedded Market

Intel introduces three microprocessors targeting hardware makers of communications infrastructure, industrial box and panel PCs and in-car infotainment systems.

Intel Corp. on Tuesday introduced three microprocessors for the embedded market, targeting hardware makers of communications infrastructure, industrial box and panel PCs and in-car infotainment systems.

The Santa Clara, Calif., chipmaker introduced the chips and a chipset at the Embedded World in Nuremburg, Germany. The chips provide higher performance and lower power consumption than older products, and the chipset features improved integrated graphics, company officials said.

The chips introduced at the conference included the Pentium M Processor 760 and Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset, the Celeron M Processor 370 and the Celeron M Processor Ultra Low Voltage 373.

Siemens AG uses the Processor 760 and Express Chipset in its industrial Simatic Box PC 627 and Panel PC 677. The Intel chip allows for better cooling and the chipset reduces system cost by eliminating the need for a graphics card, Gunther Klima, head of the Industrial PC Division in the Siemens Automation and Drives Group, said in a statement.

Electronic Equipment Produktion and Distribution GmbH, which manufactures single-board computers, plans to use the same chip and chipset in its upcoming Envader IV for in-car infotainment systems found in the BMW M series, Intel said. The panel PC provides computing and Internet access for business and entertainment.

The Intel Pentium M Processor 760 is priced at $415 at 10,000-unit quantities. The Mobile Intel 915GM Express chipset is priced at $41 in 25,000-unit quantities. The Intel Celeron M Processor 370 is priced at $131 at 10,000-unit quantities. The Intel Celeron M Processor ULV 373 is priced at $158 at 10,000-unit quantities. All these components are currently. A development kit based on the new chipset will be available in early March.
