At Intel Developer Forum in Taipei, Taiwan, Intel Corp. demonstrated the world’s first working code-named Moorestown platform for mobile Internet devices (MIDs). The company also said that that as chips get smaller and pack more functions, they open doors to new devices that will eventually enable completely new user experiences and business models.

Moorestown comprises of a system on a chip, code-named “Lincroft”, which integrates the 45nm processor, graphics, memory controller and video encode/decode onto a single chip and an I/O hub codenamed “Langwell”, which supports a range of I/O ports to connect with wireless, storage, and display components in addition to incorporating several board level functions.

Anand Chandrasekher, Intel’s senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s ultra mobility group said that Moorestown “will be a catalyst for exciting and innovative developments that will extend the full Internet experience into the smartphone space with the communication MID”. He indicated that Moorestown platforms will support a range of wireless technologies including 3G, WiMAX, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and mobile TV.

To highlight the progress it makes in the field of ultra-mobile devices, Intel demonstrated the world’s first working Moorestown platform at IDF Taipei 2008.

Additionally, Chandrasekher announced a collaboration with Ericsson for HSPA data modules optimized for the Moorestown platform. He also announced that Option is extending its collaboration for HSPA modules to the Moorestown platform. These 3G modules come in 25x30x2.x mm small size, are optimized for Moorestown power requirements and will help provide MID users with more powerful, always connected Internet-based experiences.

Mr. Chandrasekher stated that Intel is on track to reduce Moorestown platform idle power by more than 10x compared to the first-generation MIDs based on the Intel Atom processor.
