Intel's president didn't waste any time sharing the company's vision for the smallest of mobile devices to the most complex mobile networks at Mobile World Congress. Rene James detailed an expanding product portfolio that aims to compete in today's mobile ecosystem and shape the next era of computing, the Internet of Things.

James introduced two Intel Atom processors and an LTE-Advanced communications platform before announcing multi-year agreements with Lenovo, Asus and Foxconn to put more Intel-based mobile devices on the market. She also discussed how Intel is re-architecting the network infrastructure to reduce costs and make it easier for service providers to deliver better customer experiences and new services in an era of big data.

"The continued growth of the mobile ecosystem depends on solving tough computing challenges -- unlocking data's potential while securely and reliably connecting billions of devices with leading-edge computing and communications technologies," said James, who added that Intel is "well-positioned to shape the future of mobile computing and the Internet of Things."

Merrifield Is More

First, Intel launched the 2.13GHz Atom processor Z3480 that promises fast performance and long battery life for Android smartphones and tablets. The 64-bit System-on-a-Chip (SoC) aims at both mainstream and performance segments. Based on Intel's 22nm Silvermont microarchitecture, the new processor features a PowerVR Series 6 Graphics IP core from Imagination Technologies.

Dubbed Merrifield, it is the first Intel Atom SoC to feature the new Intel Integrated Sensor Solution, which works to efficiently manage sensor data to keep applications smart and contextually aware even when the device is in a low-power state. Intel expects Merrifield-based devices from multiple OEMs to launch beginning in the second quarter.

"Sixty-four-bit computing is moving from the desktop to the mobile device," James said. "Intel knows 64-bit computing, and we're the only company currently shipping 64-bit processors supporting multiple operating systems today, and capable of supporting 64-bit Android when it is available."

Moorefield Is Next

Intel also shared new details on its next-generation 64-bit Intel Atom processor, code-named "Moorefield," for devices expected to be available in the second half of the year. Building on the Merrifield feature set, Moorefield adds two additional Intel architecture cores for up to 2.3GHz of compute performance, an enhanced GPU and support for faster memory. Moorefield is optimized for Intel's 2014 LTE platform, the Intel XMM 7260, which the company also introduced on Monday.

The Intel XMM 7260 delivers competitive LTE-Advanced capabilities including carrier aggregation, category 6 speeds and support for TDD LTE and TD-SCDMA, which expands the addressable market. Intel this week is demonstrating the 7260 achieving peak LTE-Advanced Category 6 data rates of simultaneous 300Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink with carrier aggregation technology. (continued...)
