APAC IDF Fall 2002: Intel announces new Xscale processors, packaging, and flash memory
At Intel Developer Forum in Taipei, Intel announced new Xscale processors and flash memories. New chips are based on system-in-a-package (SIP) technology, in its turn, based on multi-level-cell (MLC) packaging.
Before the end of 2002 the company is to present fully integrated Manitoba chip, including flash memory, DSP, and XScale PXA core. Today Intel announced two new PXA261 and PXA262 processors, featuring XScale PXA250 RISC core and Intel StrataFlash memory. Intel´s first SIP products feature chip-scale package (CSP) of 13x13x1 mm dimensions. Intel PXA261, featuring 200 MHz XScale PXA250 and 16MB flash memory, will cost $36.10 in over 10,000-unit quantities. Intel PXA262, featuring 200 or 300 MHz core and 32MB flash memory will cost $54.60 and $62.60, respectively.
Besides, the company announced new 1.8V StrataFlash Wireless Memory samples, made using 0.13-micron process technology (such memory is used in new integrated Xscale processors). The previous StrataFlash generation required 3.3V voltage and was made using 0.18-micron process. New 64, 128, and 256 Mbit StrataFlash are to appear in the market in Q2 2003. 128 Mbit samples are available now for $17.75 in over 10,000-unit quantities. 64 Mbit and 256 Mbit chips are to appear early in 2003.
