Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

ST Microelectronics (ST) said today that it has teamed up with Microsoft and will support the CE operating system on its single-chip STPC family. ST said that it will work with Microsoft to develop CE for the STPC family and ensure that software development kits work on the platform. The move is a further development in ST's bid to capture the so-called "embedded on a chip market". Last week, it said it would be able to produce devices at less than $100 (See ST claims sub-$100 chip breakthrough). The chips use a 486 core, which was originally developed and licensed to ST by Cyrix. ST, under its former name of SGS Thomson, was, with IBM electronics, a wafer fabricating partner with Cyrix. But last week, Graham Jackson, European programme director at NatSemi-Cyrix, said that he believed that the low power devices ST is touting will not offer enough PC functionality for most people. Such devices could, however, form the basis of Net TVs and the like. ® Click for more stories Click for story index
