Corporation recently announced a new family of processors based on Intel XScaleÂ®
technology that can handle multiple forms of wireless broadband access with the
computing power to provide smartphones and PDAs with enhanced video
capabilities. Smartphones powered with this new processor will have full motion
video conferencing capabilities while PDAs will have DVD-quality video playback
This new family of processors was code-named "Bulverde" and has been unveiled as
the PXA27x series of processors.
Designed for Cell Phones, Wireless PDAs
The IntelÂ® PXA27x family of processors, formerly code-named
"Bulverde," adds a number of new technologies to address the needs of cell
phone and PDA users. It is the first product to integrate the Intel Wireless
MMXâ„¢ technology, providing additional performance for 3-D games and advanced
video while improving battery-life. The new chip also utilizes Wireless
Intel SpeedStepÂ® technology, enabling significant power savings by
intelligently managing voltage and frequency changes similar to the
technology used in the company's notebook processors.
Also for the first time, Intel has integrated important security
features through its Intel Wireless Trusted Platform to provide services
such as trusted boot, secure storage of private information and
cryptographic keys, and support for common security protocols. To help
increase camera phone capabilities and quality, Intel has also incorporated
Intel Quick Capture technology to support cameras delivering up to four or
more megapixels of image quality.
The Intel PXA27x processor family will be offered in multiple
configurations of clock speeds running from 312 up to 624 MHz, and with as
much as 64 megabytes of stacked Intel StrataFlashÂ® memory.
Multimedia Accelerator Delivers Added Mobile Multimedia Performance
Optimized to complement the Intel PXA27x processor family, the new
Intel 2700G multimedia accelerator delivers advanced video and graphic
capabilities to enable full screen video at full frame rates without
sacrificing battery life. The Intel 2700G multimedia accelerator delivers
DVD-quality video playback on VGA displays and supports a wide range of
video formats such as MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and Microsoft Windows Media Video9.
The Intel 2700G enables crisp graphics and the high resolution (up to
SXVGA) dual display features enable business users to view two independent
images simultaneously. This allows for a variety of business activities,
such as video conferencing or running presentations directly from a PDA or
other wireless device. For entertainment purposes, the Intel 2700G delivers
an outstanding mobile gaming experience, giving users exciting, 3D content
on their mobile device.
