There is a new niche for Intel processors in low power applications. Embedded designers are taking note of Intel’s Atom. The Z530 and Z510 are a different breed of embedded processor. Based on an entirely new microarchitecture and enabled by Intel’s hafnium-infused 45nm high-k dielectric silicon technology, Atom is designed for targeted performance and low power while maintaining full Intel® Core™ microarchitecture instruction set compatibility. This means that developers can use the same compilers and software development tools they already use for other Intel products.
