ESC: Intel brings quad-core processors to embedded apps

San Jose, Calif. – Commemorating 30 years of participation in the embedded computing market, Intel Corp. at the Embedded Systems Conference here unveiled two new quad-core 5300 series processors targeted at this segment. It also introduced the IP Network Server NSC2U, powered by two 5300 processors.

According to Doug Davis, vice president and general manager of Intel's Embedded and Communications Group, first devices to be released as part of the Quad-Core Xeon processor 5300 series are the E5335 and E5345 embedded processors.

The company also introduced the IP Network Server NSC2U, powered by two 5300 series processors. All three products, he said, incorporate Intel's virtualization and I/O acceleration technologies.

With dual-processing capabilities providing up to eight high-performance cores per platform, the Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series is available in 2.0 GHz (E5335) and 2.33 GHz (E5345) speeds.

These processors, said Davis, were designed for intense computing and I/O intensive workloads within high-end communications and enterprise systems, including rack-mount (1U/2U) and blade servers, NAS and SAN systems, and medical imaging equipment.

The Intel IP Network Server NSC2U, powered by two 5300 series processors is designed for a variety of network-centric applications from security intrusion prevention to telecommunications services-over-IP (SoIP), including IMS, IPTV and Video on Demand (VoD). The NSC2U server features a ruggedized chassis, compact form factor and extended lifecycle support for the components.

The E5335 and E5345 are available today now starting at $690. The Intel IP Network Server NSC2U is targeted to be available in July 2007.
