AMD's latest Geode LX microprocessor exhibits low power and high performance, making it suitable for consumer electronics and computing markets, including multimedia devices, single-board computers, access devices, and other general embedded applications. Examples of products that fit these categories include HDTVs, IP set-top boxes, thin clients, point-of-sale kiosks, and Windows-powered tablet PCs. The x86-based processor, manucatured in 0.13-micron CMOS, runs at 500 MHz while consuming just 900 mW (running at 1.2 V). With the complete chip set, it's still under 2 W. The CPU provides an increased memory bandwidth through a DDR interface and enhanced I/O throughput with USB 2.0. Embedded into the silicon are 64-kbyte data and instruction cache memories. The AMD Geode LX processor and CS5536 companion device chipset is available for $45 in 10,000-unit shipments. Slower speed variants also are available. More information is available at www.amd.com.
