Intel to produce Atom SoCs with 4G

Written by Nick Farrell



Will make us better than AMD


Chipzilla hopes to steal a march on AMD by producing Atom SoCs with built-in 4G support.

CEO Paul Otellini reportedly told financial analysts that wireless wide area network (WWAN) functionality will be integrated into its SoCs developed from smartphones and tablets. He said that this will help Intel's SoC solution look a bit different from ARM's non-x86 design which is currently used in chips offered by Nvidia, and Qualcomm.

Otellini said that he wanted to grow Infineon wireless technology capability up by integrating the apps processor and the communication processors onto the same chip, while driving initial positions in apps processors from the top down.
Intel bought Infineon a year ago with the aim of merging Intel’s existing communication portfolio with wireless mobility and cellular platforms.

He said it would bring together Intel’s strengths in WiFi and 4G WiMAX with WLS’ leadership in 2G and 3G, and a combined path to accelerate 4G LTE.
