Intel Corp. said Tuesday that it will use IBM to provide
embedded software for its Personal Internet Client Architecture
(PCA) architecture for wireless devices and Internet
Intel’s platform is aimed at vendors of next-generation Net
devices as well as application vendors and wireless carriers.
Specifically, Intel will include with the platform IBM’s
WebSphere Everyplace Suite Embedded Edition, which is
middleware for developing and distributing content to multiple
types of devices.
The Intel PCA including the IBM middleware will be released
later this year, Intel said. This isn’t the first collaboration
between the two companies. Last October, they co-created
an in-car client reference platform for Net connectivity.
