Meantime Echelon Corp has something else to celebrate with the news that Toshiba Corp is ready with the second-generation version of the Echelon Neuron node processor chip. Toshiba says the new chip offers lower power consumption and is physically smaller than the first-generation part. Underlining the sort of numbers of Local Operating Networks now being installed, Toshiba says it plans to produce 100,000 of the parts a month starting in May and will increase that to 1m a month by late 1996. No indication of price, but Toshiba, and Motorola Inc, which also fabricates the Echelon chips, said two years ago that they were aiming for a price of $5 a Neuron chip at a time when they cost $10 each in large volumes.
