Intel has launched Atom processor E600C series, which features an Atom E600 processor paired with an Altera Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) in a single package.
Based on Intel architecture, the Atom E600C processor series provides original equipment manufacturers with the flexibility to incorporate an array of standard and user-defined I/O interfaces, high-speed connectivity, memory interfaces and process acceleration to meet the evolving needs of embedded device market segments.
The Atom E600C processor series comes with seven-year-long life-cycle manufacturing support, and industrial and commercial temperature options, which makes it ideal for various market segments.
The company said that the new Intel Atom processor provides flexibility and faster time-to-market for customers, who can now handle design changes without complicated hardware changes.
In addition, the new processor offers board space savings and better inventory control due to the single package, and a simplified manufacturing flow and single vendor support through Intel.
