Intel launches the PXA800F designed for cellphones
The Intel® PXA800F Cellular Processor is designed for mainstream GSM/GPRS handsets. This high-performance, power efficient processor integrates Intel® XScale™ technology with Intel® On-Chip Flash memory and Intel® Micro Signal Architecture, jointly developed with Analog Devices, Inc.† , delivers class-leading performance, with industry-leading headroom to support computation-intensive voice and data applications for mainstream mobile phones.

Called the Intel® PXA800F cellular processor, it is a key component of the Intel® Personal Internet Client Architecture (Intel® PCA), Intel's development blueprint for designing wireless handheld communication devices that combine voice communications and Internet access capabilities.

The Intel PXA800F cellular processor features a high-performance, low-power processor running at 312 MHz based on the Intel® XScale™ technology with four megabytes of integrated Intel® On-Chip Flash memory and 512 kilobytes (KB) of SRAM for industry leading application performance. In addition, the Intel PXA800F cellular processor includes a 104 MHz signal processor using the Intel® MicroSignal architecture with 512 KB of integrated Intel On-Chip Flash memory and 64 KB of SRAM, resulting in a complete system on a single chip for advanced GSM/GPRS cellular networks.

The Intel PXA800F cellular processor is sampling today with production volumes expected in the third quarter of 2003. Products using the new processors will be available later this year, or early next year. The Intel PXA800F cellular processor has a suggested list price of $35 (US) in 10,000 unit quantities. More information on the new processors can be found at www.intel.com/info/gprs.

In creating unique "wireless-Internet-on-a-chip" technology, Intel engineers overcame significant technical hurdles associated with combining the different design and manufacturing technologies for processing, flash memory and communications functions. The Intel PXA800F cellular processor is built using a single process to place all key components onto one chip using the industry's leading .13-micron silicon manufacturing technology.
