Gets flashy with HP
AMD has some new embedded processors for thin clients, point-of-sale terminals and telecom gizmos. The new AMD-K6-2e and K6-IIIe MPUs are available at 350 and 550 MHz and in low-power variants.
The 0.18 micron embedded processors come in 321-pin grid array packages. Future versions will also be available in a new organic ball grid array.
In 1Ku the K6-2e 350-MHz is $71 while $101 buys you the 550-MHz K6-IIIe.
AMD has also inked a three year agreement to supply flash memory to HP. The chips will mainly find a home in printers. No value was disclosed for the deal. ®
