Intel has played a pivotal role in previous technology transition and will continue to enable breakthrough in future: Renee James

Islamabad, September 11, 2013 (PPI-OT): During today’s opening session of the Intel Developer Forum, Intel’s new CEO Brian Krzanich laid out Intel’s vision and described how Intel is addressing each dynamic market segment – such as accelerating Intel’s progress in ultra-mobile devices – with new products over the next year and beyond, including a new, lower-power product family.

This year’s Intel Developer Forum marked the first keynote addresses by Krzanich and Intel President Renee James since assuming their new roles in May.

In her presentation, James envisioned a new era in which every device and every object computes, meaning that integrated computing solutions must be smaller, faster, more versatile and produced in higher volume.

“Intel has played a pivotal role in every previous technology transition and will continue to enable breakthroughs in the future,” said James.

Accelerating Progress in Ultra-Mobile Devices

Krzanich said that Intel this week will introduce “Bay Trail,” Intel’s first 22nm system-on-a-chip (SoC) for mobile devices. “Bay Trail” is based on the company’s new low-power, high-performance Silvermont microarchitecture, which will power a range of innovative Android* and Windows* designs, most notably tablets and 2 in 1 devices.

As an example of how Intel will continue to use its manufacturing and architectural leadership to push further into lower power regimes, Krzanich announced the Intel Quark processor family.

The new lower-power products will extend Intel’s reach to growing segments from the industrial Internet-of-Things to wearable computing. It is designed for applications where lower power and size take priority over higher performance.

Intel will sample form-factor reference boards based on the first product in this family during the fourth quarter of this year to help partners accelerate development of tailored, optimized solutions initially aimed at the industrial, energy and transportation segments.

Intel Manufacturing Leadership

Citing continued, rapid innovation for PCs of the future, Krzanich demonstrated a 14nm-based “Broadwell” system. “Broadwell,” set to begin production by the end of this year, will be the lead product made using Intel’s 14nm manufacturing process. The first “Broadwell” products will deliver higher performance, longer battery life and low platform power points for 2 in 1 and fanless devices, Ultrabooks™ and various PC designs.

Saying that Intel will bring the full weight of its manufacturing process and architectural leadership to the Intel Atom processor family, he confirmed Intel intends to bring its Intel Atom processor and other products based on the next-generation “Airmont” microarchitecture to market on Intel’s leading-edge 14nm process technology beginning next year.

As the only company offering 3-D Tri-gate transistors and the only semiconductor manufacturer in production at 22nm, Intel leads the industry in transistor technology by about three years. With its coming 14nm process, Intel’s second process generation with 3-D Tri-gate transistors, the company will further extend this lead. Advanced 3-D Tri-gate transistors enable the improved performance and energy efficiency demanded by today’s spectrum of computing that ranges from ultra-mobiles to servers.
