Intel preps StrongARM launch

Cybervillage reveals roadmap details

Acorn Cybervillage has published some tantalising details of the roadmap for the SA-220, Intel's next generation StrongARM. Codenamed the Coyanosa, the SA-220 will ship in Q2 2000. The new StrongARM family is built to 0.18 micron spec, and various flavours run from 100MHz to 600MHz They retain the low-power features of the first generation StrongARM family, Cybervillage's Stuart Halliday, says. He reveals that new versions of the SA-220 include the Cotulla (SA-2100) and the Benbrook (SA-2500). "These devices are to run in simpler veins to the SA-1100 and the SA-1500 developed for Element 14 (the company formerly known as Acorn) but of course with a SA-220 core." According to Halliday’s sources, "Intel firmly sees the target markets for the StrongARM to be in the maturing set-top box markets". ®
