Think big with the Intel® Atom™ processor. Built with industry-leading 45nm and 32nm microarchitecture, the Intel Atom processor's low thermal design, highly-integrated application processor, and scalable performance-to-power ratios make it the optimum choice for an amazing array of low power devices.
Smart and scalable
The Intel® Atom™ processor family is intelligently scalable, with a low power profile, a versatile range of performance characteristics, and small size. This makes the Intel Atom processor the right choice for a variety of uses, including handhelds, smartphones, digital televisions, interactive kiosks, point-of-sale terminals, in-vehicle infotainment systems, media phones, industrial automation equipment, digital security systems, and residential gateways.
Increasing its flexibility is the Intel® Atom™ processor family's highly integrated system-on-a-chip (SoC), which, depending on the chip, can incorporate a broad range of board-level functions, including 3-D graphics, video encode/decode, memory, display and NAND controllers, low-power audio engines, high-resolution cameras, USB OTG, security blocks, and wireless connectivity.
Not only is the Intel® Atom™ processor amazingly compact and performance optimized, it's also environmentally responsible. Using lead-free and halogen-free manufacturing, the Intel Atom processor was among the first to remove halogen and lead altogether.
