Intel cooks up chip fest

Intel will reveal details of its forthcoming mobile Banias and 3.0GHz Pentium 4 processors and will tout plans for sophisticated communications devices at its semi-annual Developer Forum conference, which begins Sept. 9 in San Jose, Calif.

The architecture of the Banias chip, scheduled for release in the first half of next year, will be revealed during keynotes from Paul Otellini, president and COO of Santa Clara, Calif.-based Intel, and Anand Chandrasekher, vice president and general manager of Intel's mobile platforms group, on Monday, Sept. 9, and Tuesday, Sept. 10, respectively.

"Banias is the first time we've developed an architecture from the ground up," said Frank Spindler, vice president of the Intel corporate technology group.

Ron Smith, senior vice president and general manager of the wireless communications and computing group, will discuss new the capabilities of its XScale processors, which are based on a core from ARM Ltd. The XScale was introduced in February and is found in products such as Hewlett-Packard Co.'s iPaq PDA.

The convergence of communications and computing will be the focus of Wednesday's events.

Computers and communications devices such as cell phones are converging, Intel officials stressed. "Those are becoming more indistinguishable," Intel's Spindler said.

"Increasingly, the technologies that are appropriate for one industry are moving to the other industry," added Anthony Ambrose, director of the Intel communications group.

Mike Fister, senior vice president and general manager of the enterprise platform group, and Sean Maloney, executive vice president and general manager of the Intel communications group, will address the crowd at the conference on ways to access information stored on corporate networks and the Internet using new technology.

The last day of the show will consist of a keynote from Patrick Gelsinger, vice president and chief technology officer of the corporate technology group, and Sunlin Chou, senior vice president and general manager of the technology and manufacturing group.

Gelsinger and Chou will discuss the future of Moore's Law, the law developed by Intel's co-founder Gordon Moore that states the number of transistors on a chip will double every couple of years. Sunlin also plans to discuss Intel's 90-nanometer process technology.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
