VIA announced its new Nano X2 E-Series dual core processors for advanced 64-bit x86 embedded system design applications. The new E-Series is available in two models running at speeds of 1.2GHz and 1.6GHz. The processor combines “two 64-bit, superscalar VIA Nano cores on one die, offering enhanced multi-tasking and superb multimedia performance on a low power budget.” It includes VIA AES hardware security features.
VIA’s dual core X2 E-Series includes the VT virtualization, a technology that allows legacy software and applications to be used in virtual scenarios without impacting on performance. It is natively 64-bit compatible and works with 64-bit operating systems such as Windows Embedded Standard 7. It is also fully compatible with Windows CE and Linux operating systems.
VIA Nano X2 E-Series Processors are sampling now to project customers. Systems and boards featuring VIA Nano X2 E-Series processors will be available in Q2 2011.
