Eurotech Uses Latest Intel® Atom™ Processor D510 for Dual Core Performance with Extended Lifecycle Support
Amaro, UD, March 2, 2010
— Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products, and systems, announces an extensive product roadmap based on the latest Intel® Atom™ processor D510 with dual core capability and seven-year extended lifecycle support from Intel, starting with the Catalyst LP. The Catalyst LP extends the offerings of Eurotech's award winning Catalyst Module family, which began with the Intel® Atom™ processor Z5xx series, to include the newest Intel® Atom™ technology.
The Catalyst LP provides performance and flexibility for embedded applications requiring high-speed graphics and computational power with the ability to run multiple processes and operating systems concurrently. These features, coupled with the seven-year lifecycle support from Intel, make the Catalyst LP and other products based on the new processor ideal for medical, industrial, or security markets which use sophisticated, high definition graphics, human-to-machine or machine-to-machine interfacing, and require long-term support from embedded vendors.
The Catalyst LP product line offers support for Eurotech's Everyware™ Software Framework (ESF) on the Wind River Linux 3.0 operating system. ESF provides a Java-based software development environment with functionality for specific verticals, and allows OEMs to simplify and streamline application development. ESF also allows OEMs to migrate their software to next generation Catalyst platforms with a minimum of developer time so they can stay current with the latest technology.
"Eurotech's Catalyst LP based on the Intel® Atom™ processor D510 offers an exciting solution for embedded OEMs requiring the increased performance while still meeting low power requirements. The processor's integration and dual-core capability allowed Intel to shrink packaging while increasing performance and functionality, making the Intel® Atom™ processor D510 a game changer for embedded applications," explains Arlen Nipper, President and CTO of Eurotech Inc. "Our power management expertise has allowed us to design a module with power consumption under 15W when running dual-core functionality, without sacrificing performance in other areas. In addition, with the extended lifecycle support from Intel, our customers can be sure that Eurotech will continue to expand our portfolio with products that fully use the processor's capabilities."
The Catalyst LP will be available in the first quarter of 2010.
