The News: With the debut of the configurable Intel® Atom™ processor E600C series, Intel Corporation is making it easier for customers to go-to-market with differentiated, custom-made designs. Formerly codenamed “Stellarton,” the series features an Intel® Atom™ E600 processor paired with an Altera* Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) on a single package.
The Context: The new Intel Atom technology package provides greater flexibility and faster time-to-market for customers, who can now more readily handle design changes without complicated hardware changes – helping to lower development costs. In addition, the new processor offers more inventory control since it can be easily modified, as well as a simplified manufacturing flow and single vendor support through Intel.
Why It Matters: Based on the standard Intel Architecture blueprint, the Intel Atom E600C processor series provides original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with the flexibility to incorporate a wide range 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.
