Intel’s new Atom gets software support

Written by Nick Farrell



QNX and Insyde give industry backing

Intel’s attempts to push its Atom chips onto the mobile and business world received an important boost from two key software companies.

 

QNX and Insyde have both announced that the Bay Trail based E3800 product family will be supported by their code. Intel's new Atom processor family is built on the Silvermont microarchitecture and is made using 22 nm FinFET process. What seems to interest the two software companies is that the chips are designed to work in harsh industrial/outdoor weather conditions while consuming less power and packing higher computing capabilities.

It makes it possible to create gadgets with higher I/O connectivity, integrated memory controller, virtualisation, error correction code (ECC), and built-in security capabilities. With the code that the pair make, it will be possible to target prodcuts in the embedded computer domain include digital signage, kiosks, ATM and point of sale terminals, portable medical devices, industrial control systems/factory automation, and in vehicle infotainment systems in automotive.

Insyde's Software Platform for Android includes support for developing Humanos which is Insyde's optimized version of x86 Android. It can also manage Multiple-Open-Windows, Secure Boot, unique Android apps, customization services, Google certification testing preparation services, and an Android App Market that can be private labeled to meet specific OEM requirements.
