Seven Steps to Software Security

Craig Barrett, Intel's CEO, said yesterday that it was happy with the StrongARM architecture as a building block for Web appliances and the like, and that it was not considering adopting any new chip architecture for the burgeoning market. Barrett, speaking at a Dow Jones Q&A session in London yesterday, was, however, unwilling to say at which point StrongARM chip volumes would surpass IA chip volumes. He said: "I haven't the foggiest idea when StrongARM will surpass Pentium. We'll push StrongARM into all these spaces where its characteristics are best." He said that the IA architecture still suited the high performance high power market, and did not suit the mobile areas StrongARM was good in. However, Intel will use low-powered 386 processors for some mobile designs, he confirmed. ®
