Intel Core Duo Delivered to Embedded Market
Intel today provided extended lifecycle support for the Intel Core Duo processor used by developers of embedded solutions, such as industrial control, test and instrumentation, aerospace, defense and medical imaging systems.
Embedded system designers increasingly wrestle with two challenges: balancing performance with power efficiency and supporting general purpose and special purpose functionality in embedded applications. Intel Core Duo processors provide system designers with the performance, low power and flexibility to build innovation into embedded systems.
Two independent processing cores can support multiple operating systems simultaneously to provide design–flexibility for custom applications. Intel provides a full set of software tools, including compilers, performance analyzers and thread checkers, to assist developers in maximizing application performance and to fully exploit concurrent threading.
The Intel Core Duo processor combines high performance with innovative power management capabilities to minimize operational costs. Features such as Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology enable the system to dynamically regulate power to cores, caches and interconnects in response to changing processing requirements. The Intel Core Duo processor is supported by the Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset, which provides enhanced graphics, I/O bandwidth, storage speed and reliability for embedded system designs.
The Intel Core Duo processor for designers of embedded systems is available now at speeds of 2.0 GHz and 1.66 GHz for $423 and $316, respectively, each in 1,000–unit quantities. Intel will offer a development kit for the Intel Core Duo processor with the Mobile Intel® 945GM chipset priced at $1,500 and available within 30 days.
