AMD Launches Longevity Program
AMD announced that its dual-core technology is now available through the AMD64 Longevity Program, serving high-end embedded designs that require stable, longer-than-standard processor supply roadmaps. The Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processor Models 165, 265 and 865, as well as the lower-power 55 watt version of each, are planned to be available for five years, allowing embedded designers to enjoy the performance of true x86 dual-core technology in thermal and power envelopes that these markets demand.
AMD64 processors are currently being designed into a number of forthcoming high-end embedded systems. Beyond network storage and telecommunications, industries such as military computing, homeland security and medical imaging should also recognize the performance and efficiency of dual-core technologies.
In addition to offering support and supply longevity, AMD is further enabling the embedded design community with a new upcoming Reference Design Kit from Critia Computer, Inc., expected to be available in Q3 of 2005. This RDK represents a Compact PCI design and will help speed customers’ development of communications infrastructure and high-end embedded products.
