Dual Core Processors Outfit 64-bit x86 Designs

EMBEDDED SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, MAY 2011 – The VIA Nano X2 E-Series processors combine an optimized, power-efficient dual-core architecture with advanced performance for demanding 86-bit x86 embedded system design applications. Available in two models running at speeds of 1.2+ GHz and 1.6+ GHz, the processors also come with a component longevity guarantee of seven years. Leveraging the latest 40nm manufacturing process, they team two 64-bit, superscalar VIA Nano cores on one die. Additional features include VIA VT virtualization, a technology that allows legacy software and applications to be used in virtual scenarios without impacting on performance.
