AMD, Samsung Bow Chips for Win CE .NET

AMD Tuesday said that three of its Alchemy processors support the Microsoft Windows CE .NET operating system, Windows CE .NET version 4.1.

The Alchemy Au1000, Au1100, and Au1500 processors are MIPS technology-based Au1 core processors from AMD.

According to AMD, these System-on-a-Chip (SOC) processors are well suited for non-PC Internet appliances, such as Web pads, PDAs, and gateways such as routers and line cards.

Samsung Semiconductor also announced a new line of embedded ARM-based Application Processors, specifically designed to support Windows CE .NET version 4.1, the latest release of the Microsoft embedded operating system.

The market availability of the application processors is the result of a strategic relationship between Samsung and Microsoft, the companies said.

Samsung added a 2D graphics accelerator, camera interface, image scalar, and a color space converter to its application processors.
