Low-cost SoC targets networked Linux devices
NetSilicon will sample in November a low-cost one-chip network device SoC (system-on-chip) that will hit production in March, 2005, priced between $11 and $16 in 10K quantities. The NS9360 is based on a 200MHz ARM9 core, with an LCD controller and networking. It is supported under Linux by third-party partners, and targets cost-sensitive, space-limited applications such as industrial, building, and medical automation, instrumentation, networked displays, networked terminals, and industrial POS (point-of-sale/service) printers.
