Intel Builds New SoCs, LTE Modem for Mobile Devices

The chip maker introduces its new family of Atom processors and third-generation LTE Advanced Category 10 modem at Mobile World Congress.

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Intel Corporation introduced a series of mobile platforms and products that support a full spectrum of mobile devices across form factors and price points. The new products include the Intel Atom x3 processor series, the Intel Atom x5 and x7 processor series, and the five-mode Intel XMM 7360 LTE Advanced solution.

The Intel Atom x3 processor series (formerly code-named “SoFIA”) is the company’s first integrated communications SoC solution for entry and value tablets, phablets, and smartphones. Combining 64-bit multi-core Intel Atom processors together with 3G or 4G LTE connectivity, the integrated communications SoC brings together the applications processor, image sensor processor, graphics, audio, connectivity, and power management components in a single system chipset. The Intel Atom x3 processor family includes:

  • Intel Atom x3-C3130, a dual-core platform with an Intel Atom processor integrated with a 3G modem
  • Intel Atom x3-C3230RK, a quad-core platform with an Intel Atom processor integrated with a 3G modem, manufactured by Rockchip
  • Intel Atom x3-C3440, a quad-core platform with an Intel Atom processor integrated with a LTE modem

In addition to the Intel Atom x3 processor series, Intel unveiled its first 14nm Intel Atom SoC, the Intel Atom x5 and x7 processor series (formally code-named “Cherry Trail”), for next-generation tablets and small-screen 2 in 1s. Offering 64-bit support for Windows and Android, Intel Gen 8 graphics, and an option to pair with next-generation LTE Advanced connectivity, the Intel Atom x5 and x7 processor series will power a range of mainstream to premium devices.

Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Toshiba have already committed to deliver devices using the new Atom platforms. The first devices are expected to be in the market in the first half of this year.

Intel also introduced its third-generation five-mode, LTE Advanced Category 10 modem. The Intel XMM 7360 supports 3x carrier aggregation and download speeds up to 450 Mbps. Its compact size and power efficiency enable the Intel XMM 7360 to accommodate a range of form factors, from smartphones and phablets to tablets and PCs. The modem is expected to ship in devices in the second half of 2015.
