InfoWorld: Transmeta steps onto the European stage

(Other stories by Laura Rohde)

"Transmeta, which only last month took the wraps off its Crusoe line of chips, on Monday started its debut tour of Europe, stopping for a press conference here before making its debut at the CeBit trade show, which kicks off Wednesday in Hanover, Germany...."

"The software that works with the chips has a special stand-by, low-power mode that can switch itself on and off even in between strokes on the keyboard. Furthermore, the software "can actually learn about the application while it's running, so it figures out how to run faster and learn to run with less power," Ditzel said...."

"In order to take advantage of Europe's rapidly growing wireless market, Ditzel pointed out that the products using the Crusoe chips have ports built in for easy plug-in of a variety of radio cards. Part of Transmeta's reason for being in Europe, and specifically in Hanover, is to let companies that are working on wireless products know that Crusoe has access to the radio infrastructure, Ditzel said."
