Intel is the world's largest semiconductor chip maker. The company is also the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers. Intel was founded on July 18, 1968, as INTegrated ELectronics Corporation and based in Santa Clara, California, USA. Intel also makes motherboard chipsets, network cards and ICs, flash memory, graphic chips, embedded processors, and other devices related to communications and computing. Founded by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore, and widely associated with the executive leadership and vision of Andrew Grove, Intel combines advanced chip design capability with a leading-edge manufacturing capability. Originally known primarily to engineers and technologists, Intel's successful "Intel Inside" advertising campaign of the 1990s made it and its Pentium processor household names.
During the 1990s, Intel's Architecture Lab (IAL) was responsible for many of the hardware innovations of the personal computer, including the PCI Bus, the PCI Express (PCIe) bus, the Universal Serial Bus (USB), Bluetooth wireless interconnect, and the now-dominant architecture for multiprocessor server. IAL's software efforts met with a more mixed fate; its video and graphics software was important in the development of software digital video.
Atom is the new family of processors for Mobile Internet Devices. It is based on an entirely new micro architecture designed specifically for small devices and low power, while maintaining the Intel Core 2 Duo compatibility. It supports for multiple threads.
It will be the Intel's smallest and lowest power processor. It will be manufactured on Intel's 45nm processor technology. The chips will consume about 0.6 - 2.5 watt and can scale upto 1.8GHz clock speeds.
Newly designed from the ground up, 45nm IntelÃ‚Â® Atomâ€žÂ¢ processors pack an astounding 47 million transistors on a single chip measuring less than 26mmÃ‚Â², making them Intel's smallest and lowest power processors. All this while delivering the power and performance you need for full Internet capabilities.
