Intel launched Atom processor E600 series, System-on-Chip (SoC) technology based processor in India. According to Intel, these processors with their open interconnect allows easier pairing with a various input/output devices. Intel South Asia Embeded & Communications Group Managing Director (Emerging Markets), Sanat Rao said that the E600 series is ideal for applications such as in-vehicle infotainment systems, internet phones and smart grid devices.

The processor, earlier codenamed ‘Tunnel Creek’ put together additional capabilities onto the chip and accelerates connectivity to the internet. The main benefit of the E600 series processor seems to be its high performance on optimum power, enabling the small form factor devices to be built on the chip. The total cost of the material is also reduced due to the chip’s compact design.

Some of the third party vendors are optimizing the chip for various embedded applications. OKI Semiconductor for in-vehicle infotainment and telecommunications terminals, Realtec Semiconductor for connected services gateways and medical devices, and STMicroelectronics for in-vehicle infotainment systems, are among the few.
