The Eden ESP7000 processor, based on an x86-compatible core and the company's CoolStream architecture, also includes the company's PadLock data encryption engine and enhanced digital-media performance. The PadLock engine includes a random number generator, reducing the CPU overhead needed to support data-security applications. Due to the processor's low power consumption, it can be used in fanless entertainment, communications, commercial, and industrial applications. Housed in a low-profile thermally enhanced BGA package, the Eden ESP7000 consumes just 6 W, maximum, and typically only 1 W when running at a clock speed of 733 MHz. In volume, the Eden ESP7000 processor is priced at $85 each.
