Freescale rolls out i.MX515 processor for netbooks

Posted on Monday, January 05 2009 @ 17:47:18 CET by

Freescale has unveiled the i.MX515, an ARM Cortex-A8 based processor for netbooks that are priced below $200. These chips can't run x86 applications but will offer superior battery life.
"What they're (Freescale) targeting is definitely the way netbooks are going," said Phil Solis of ABI Research.

Freescale's new ARM-based chip is from its i.MX line, which is designed for various mobile devices. The company said the chip would allow a netbook with an 8.9-inch display to receive eight hours of battery life. Freescale's reference design features the Linux-based Ubuntu operating system.

The company did not give a price for the chip, which will be showcased at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.
