New Intel Atom Processor: Big Integration, Tiny Chip

Authored on: Nov 3, 2010 by Rex Lee

Technical Paper / Product Paper

More InfoLess Info
Embedded developers are under constant pressure to reduce the cost, power consumption, and footprint of their designs. At the same time, developers are facing pressure to reduce time to market, and to create scalable designs that can be reused for multiple markets and across product generations. To meet these goals, developers need a solution that is both highly integrated and highly flexible. The new Intel Atom processor E6xx series was designed with just this need in mind.

Looks like a lot of integration and support for various serial bus interfaces required in Consumer as well as industrial applications has been provided in this design. Some information about the internal architecture of the Atom processor - its instruction set etc will be beneficial to the software and firmware developers

Does not look very integrated to me. I do not need a display/video interface and even the companion chip does not have enough ports and bandwidth to be of interest. Freescale still has a lot more integrated into a SINGLE chip.

The chip set still requires too much power and I still have to pay a royalty for a BIOS that I don't need. When will Intel realize that the BIOS is a huge cost in the BOM and get us a U-Boot or something similar?

I like the speed of processing but need more IOs and different options for my typical embedded applications. I2C,CAN, analog channels, DIOs, etc.. would be needed for me to consider it. I will have to continue looking for the right SBC..
