The new products for the Intel Atom processor Z5xx series, scheduled for released in the second quarter, include industrial-temperature options, as well as different package-size choices targeting in-car infotainment devices, media phones, eco-technologies and other industrial-strength applications.
The Atom processor, the smallest and least power hungry in Intel's range, is currently making big waves in the explosive new low-end sub-notebook or netbook space, where a large proportion of the use is disconnected from grid power.
The Atom the company’s smallest, built with the world’s smallest and most energy-efficient transistors.
According to Intel, the low-power Atom processor is behind much of the company's growth into several new computing-related market segments, including embedded industries such as automotive in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), industrial control and automation and media phones.
Intel says its products also enable market segment innovation through advancements in integrated 2D and 3D graphics, video acceleration and support for multiple operating systems including several versions of Windows and Linux.
