DigiTimes writes Intel is about to launch the Bay Trail-Entry, a new chip specifically for entry-level tablets. The chip giant hopes to ship 40 million tablet processors this year but in the first quarter sales totaled just 5 million.
In order to help vendors and makers adopt Bay Trail-Entry, Intel has offered tablet reference designs based on the platform, including 7-inch models equipped with its Atom Z3735G and 8-inch with the Atom Z3735F, the sources said.

In addition, Intel has recommended a list of certified tablet component suppliers including AU Optronics, Innolux, Chunghwa Picture Tubes, BOE Technology and InfoVision Optoelectronics (Kunshan) for panels, OVT, Galaxycore Shanghai and BYD for lens solutions, Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix, Micron Technology, Nanya Technology and Integrated Silicon Solution for memory, Fibocom Wireless, ZTE and Huawei Technologies for 3G/4G modules, Broadcom and Realtek Semiconductor for communication ICs, FocalTech Systems, Goodix and ILI Technology for touch solutions, Kionix, Bosch and AMM for sensors, and Monolithic Power Systems and Texas Instruments for power management, the sources noted.
