AMD is aiming to conquer 20 percent of the embedded processor market this year:
AMD recently announced the addition of its dual-core Turion 64 X2 TL-52 to its embedded processor line up. With the joining of Broadcom, Nvidia and Silicon Integrated System (SiS) in AMD's Longevity Program for embedded solutions, a scheme which gives embedded solution providers assurance that processors will be available for five years, AMD should see its share of the embedded processor market rise to 20% this year up from a 15% share in 2006, noted sources at Taiwan-based IPC makers.

German-based IPC maker Kontron pointed out that since clients are asking for faster processor speeds, better image and communications processing, lower power consumption and increased performance, dual-core processors will become mainstream in the IPC industry.
