SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Taiwan's Via Technologies Inc. has rolled out the VIA Nano E-Series processor line, a family of x86-based, 64-bit devices for the embedded markets.
Available at speeds from 800-MHz to 1.8-GHz, VIA Nano E-Series processors are built around a 64-bit, superscalar architecture that powers Via's Nano 3000 Series and 2000 Series processors.
The processors bring native 64-bit software support and virtualization capabilities to the embedded markets. Forthcoming operating systems such as Windows Embedded Standard 7 will be available on the devices.
"VIA Nano E-Series processors have been designed to facilitate the shift towards new technologies that will shape the embedded industry for years to come," said Daniel Wu, vice president of the VIA Embedded Platform Division at Via, in a statement. "The VIA Nano E-Series will mean that technologies such as 64-bit computing and virtual software deployment will become the norm, not the exception for tomorrow's embedded system developers."
VIA Nano E-Series processor samples are available.
