Insyde Announces InsydeH2O UEFI Firmware for Intel EP80579 Processor

Insyde Software, a leading provider of Universal Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) based firmware, BIOS and engineering services announced the availability of its InsydeH2O[tm] UEFI firmware solution for the Intel® EP80579 Integrated Processor product line. With the release of this latest version of InsydeH2O, Insyde Software continues to add to their already broad UEFI BIOS portfolio with Intel compatibility.

The Intel® EP80579 Integrated Processor product line integrates several key system components into single Intel® Architecture-based chips. These Intel system-on-a-chip (SOCs) deliver significant improvements in power-efficient throughput performance and form factor by reducing the chip footprint size by up to 45 percent and power consumption by up to 30 percent, compared to a standard four-chip design in embedded and communications market segments.

“Intel’s product gives our customers a compelling SOC design choice for their next family of embedded devices,” said Jonathan Joseph, Executive Vice President of Insyde Software. “InsydeH2O continues to enable our customers’ innovations on Intel Architecture with UEFI technology.”

“The Intel EP80579 product line provides an attractive solution for customers that require fast time-to-market on products requiring high levels of integration, low power and a small form factor,” said Rose Schooler, general manager, Embedded Performance Products Division, Intel.

Insyde Software, along with their partner ADI Engineering, will showcase several demonstrations of InysdeH2O support of the Intel EP80579 Integrated Processor product line at the upcoming Intel® Developer Forum (IDF) being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, August 19-21, 2008.
