Chinese processor enables $99 netbook

Posted on Thursday, December 17 2009 @ 04:05:11 CET by

EE Times reports Cherrypal has launched a $99 netbook that is powered by a processor from Chinese chip maker Ingenic Semiconductor.
The Cherrypal Africa has a 7-inch screen size, is powered by a 400-MHz processor and features 256-Gbytes of RAM, 2-Gbytes of flash memory and can run either the Linux or Windows CE operating systems, the company states without revealing the make or model of the microprocessor.

However, according to numerous reports of the launch of the Africa model, the processor is made by Ingenic and is an XBurst CPU which is in turn said to be based on the MIPS-II instruction set architecture. According to an online database of processors for PDAs, Ingenic's four processors, the JZ4720, JZ4730, JZ4740 and JZ4755 are all MIPS-II compatible processors. However Ingenic has also been linked speculatively to ARM Holdings plc (Cambridge, England) in the past.
