Creo’s challenge was to increase the performance of Spire color servers to keep pace with today’s faster printers and presses. For large format files used in on-demand digital printing, the required performance improvements include increased throughput, faster memory processing, larger memory cache, and more efficient board design. The highly integrated Intel IOP331 I/O processor met all of Creo’s performance criteria. It runs on high-performance, low-power Intel XScale technology to deliver a completely integrated system-on-chip for fast embedded processing.
