"At the Intel Developers Forum conference in San Jose, CA,
Intel today announced XScale, an embedded microprocessor
architecture derived from StrongARM technology. Relative to
StrongARM, XScale will boast significantly increased speed
(approaching 1 GHz), substantially reduced power consumption (down
to 0.0001W), and will incorporate a number of new technologies that
optimize its use in tomorrow's mobile, wireless, and Internet
"Intel will use the new XScale microarchitecture as the
processor "core" for a family of upcoming embedded processors that
are likely to integrate a large number of on-chip system functions,
in a manner similar to Intel's StrongARM system-on-chip devices
such as the SA-1110 (info)."
"Like the existing StrongARM processors, the new XScale core
based processors will be supported by multiple suppliers of
Embedded Linux. Specifically, Intel says the Intel XScale
microarchitecture development platforms will contain the GNU
toolchains from Red Hat, including compiler, assembler, linker,
debugger, and monitor software. Additionally, according to Intel,
Embedded Linux implementations optimized for XScale will be
available from both LinuxWorks and MontaVista."
