Intel sticks Altera's field programmable gate arrays into Atom

Written by Nick Farell


Programmable chips
Intel has integrated Altera's field programmable gate arrays into its new set of Atom chips.

Chipzilla says that it is E600C series will make it easier for OEMs to program the chips to meet their specific needs and to provide updates to their products at a reduced development cost. Jonathan Luse, Intel's director of marketing for low-power embedded products, said the single-chip package is easier to integrate than separate chips. It should mean that manufacturers can come up with smaller gizmos.

The series is targeted for industrial machines, portable medical equipment, communications gear, vision systems, VoIP devices, high-performance programmable logic controllers and embedded computers. Intel will release four new processors based on the configuration in the next two months, and we should see a couple more in the first quarter of 2011.
