Insiders said that the next iteration of the StrongARM chip from Intel will be a part called the SA-120 which will run at 366MHz. Currently, Intel is pushing the SA-110 chip, which is set to be replaced by the new processor which may be out at the end of the year. The device is likely to be powerful enough to run speech recognition software, built into both mobile phones and set top boxes, according to the sources. Psion may also release a version of Organiser which uses the processor and also will use voice recognition software. Craig Barrett, CEO of Intel, said at the company's developer forum two weeks ago that its StrongARM business was complementary to its IA-32 and IA-64 architecture. He said in his keynote speech that StrongARM chip technology, acquired as part of a settlement deal with Digital last year, will be used in smart handheld devices, Internet access devices and for embedded control. Intel was not prepared to comment on the reports. ®
