Second Generation Intel Core Processors for Embedded Systems

The second generation Intel Core processor family will feature seven microprocessors for embedded applications with 7-year extended lifecycle support. The Core i7-2710QE and i7-2600; Core i5-2400; and Core i3-2120 are available immediately. The Core i7 and i5 processors that include ECC in the Ball Grid Array package and Core i5-2510E are scheduled to be available within two months. Prices for the Intel Core processors range from $138 to $378 (quantities of 1,000). The processors are ideal for digital signage, digital security and surveillance, industrial, medical and retail applications.
