Intel enters the market of communication control chips: IXC1100 and 1.6 GHz Low Voltage Xeon

It seems that communication control chip makers — IBM, MIPS, PMC-Sierra, etc. — will have to compete with another rival henceforward, as Intel announced its products for this market. In the nearest future the company plans to present IXC1100 processor, based on Xscale architecture. In addition, the company begins the deliveries of low-voltage Xeon chips, designed especially for communications devices.

IXC1100 is a system-on-a-chip (SoC) product. It will be shipped in three variants: with 266 MHz, 400 MHz and 533 MHz clock rates. IXC1100 will be used for the development of multi-featured switches, voice-over-IP systems, wireless products. Unlike most comm chips, that utilize multiple RISC cores, new Intel chip bases on the uniprocessor architecture and supports the standard V5TE instruction set from ARM Ltd. IXC1100 combines several modules, including memory controller, PCI bus, timers, 10/100 Mbps Ethernet.

Low Voltage (LV) 1.6 MHz Intel Xeon supports HyperThreading, features 30 W dissipated power and is designed for E7500 boards. Single and dual-processor systems, based on LV Xeon, will be used in programmable network devices, high memory and I/O throughput.

IXC1100 samples are already available, volume shipments will start in the beginning of Q4 2002. In 1000 unit consignments 266 MHz will cost $35, 533 MHz model — $55. 1.6 GHz Low Voltage Intel Xeon will cost $355 in similar conditions.
