The Future Of Intel Processors - Menlo, Moorestown & Medfield

Updated on November 28, 2009

It has been Intel's strategy to introduce the Atom microprocessor structure into the handheld market by the continued development of the three generations of the microprocessor named Menlo, Moorestown and Medfield. In each of these subsequent generations, the commitment of Intel Corporation to increase performance, reduce power and size has been extremely successful.

With the Menlo generation, the TDP was reduced tenfold, while with Moorestown the idle power of the platform was reduced by a factor of fifty times. In the first half of 2010, Menlo will be launched. It is an Intel silicon chipsets, which will be utilized by Intel's corporate partners in introducing devices into the consumer arena by end of 2010. This Menlo silicon chipset will provide internet multimedia and personal computer performance to a wide variety of telephone capable devices to create a device which is tiny, pocketable, economical, extremely versatile and powerful.

Intel's roadmap calls for Medfield to be moved to 32 nanometers in 2011, which will allow Intel to introduce its architecture into these smallest format smart phones, which are currently on the drawing boards. Thirty two nanometer Medfield reduces drastically the power utilization the board size and the number of chips within the circuit, and it is this miniaturization which is going to trigger the development of an entire range of devices which are, as of right now, not yet imaginable.

When the handheld arena is analyzed it is obvious that this plethora of innovative platforms require a completely new and different type of operating software and that software is Intel's Moblin. By far, one of the most significant advantages gained by the implementation of an Intel Atom microprocessor is the capability to reutilize the majority of what has already been developed on netbooks into smaller and more mobile devices. One of the more interesting aspects of the application of Moblin operational system software is the ability for a specific customized panel to appear, which is designed to contain just the end users contacts and allow that end-user to very swiftly engage that contact in a communication, whether it be via a conventional telephone call, an instant messaging, or an SMS.

Moblin also features a status panel, which allows the end user to broadcast out to the entire range of their own personal station networks. The advantage of this capability is that the end user can enter their current activities and send this message off to all of their social networks at once. Simply by tapping one of the icons on the Moblin screen, various applications and zone utilities are launched, which allow you to utilize any application that can be utilized on a full-sized personal computer in a miniaturized way on the Moblin platform.

The Moblin browser duplicates many of the more popular features of full-size PC browsers. Indeed the basis or the Moblin browser was the overall experience of navigating the Internet on the common engine developed by Mozilla. The graphics user interface has been modified so that it displays perfectly on the small screens which are common to Moblin devices and also feature the ability to receive interactive commands through touch.
