Intel announces Manitoba E — "Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution" (EDGE)

Intel announced its new PXA800EF comm processor codenamed "Manitoba E" and designed for Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) standards.

Similar to the previous PXA800F, the new chip bases on XScale RISC architecture that enables it to operate in GSM and EDGE networks.

EDGE provides data throughput of 150-180Kbps, but it might settle down only in USA, as most European and Asian countries are to proceed from GPRS directly to 3G.

PXA800EF doesn´t differ much from PXA800F. It just has EDGE support, its DSP chip with MSA architecture has 156MHz clock speed instead of 104MHz. Besides, some software changes have been implemented. PXA800EF has 312MHz clock speed, 4Mb flash memory and 512Kb SRAM.

PXA800EF is already sampling, with volume shipments scheduled to Q1 2004 and first handsets expected late in 2004. For over 10,000-unit quantities chip is priced $40.
