MANHASSET, N.Y. — Touting multimode wireless-LAN interoperability, Agere Systems Inc. has announced a chip set that supports IEEE 802.11a, b and g standards but features smaller die sizes and requires half the component count of current .11b solutions. The four-chip set was jointly developed with Infineon Technologies AG and will cost $15.

<p>Features in H.323 can be categorized into three classes: local features, network-based features, and supplementary services. Local features can be implemented in the endpoints without requiring specific signaling to other network entities. Examples for local features are: repeat a call, call history and call lists, local address book, speed dialing, privacy functions like do not disturb and mute, etc.</p>

However, system firmswon't be able to use the Centrino brand on their PCs unless they use the IntelWi-Fi module — a major inducement to share in Intel's $300 million promotioncampaign behind Centrino.

Ironically the Centrino Wi-Fi doesn't use Intel-made parts, since Intel wasn'table to develop its own wireless LAN chips in time for the launch, according toanalysts. Texas Instruments makes the MAC chip and Philips Semiconductorprovides the radio chip.

The Pentium M at launch will only be supported by Intel's own 855 chipset, aspreviously reported by EBN . Intel has not yet licensed any third party chipsetvendors for the new Pentium M, although negotiations with many firms are stillongoing.

The Pentium M processor unveiled as part of the Centrino brand comes in sixspeed grades from 900MHz to 1.6GHz. This compares with 2.4GHz frequency for thelatest version of the existing Pentium 4M. Intel, which up to now has championedthe frequency race of processors, now touts the Pentium M's higher performance andlower power over current faster processors.

The new mobile processor has a 400MHz quad-pumped front side bus, which is poweroptimized so only as much of the bus is used as needed at any one time.

The Pentium M has 1Mbyte of on-die L2 cache. The cache is divided into quadrantsfor greater power management. Only one segment of the cache can be powered at atime while others remain in a sleep mode.

AMD, meanwhile, was quick to toutthat the new Athlon XP-M processors support any of the three major wireless LANproducts on the market, 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g. Intel's Pentium M alsosupports the three Wi-Fi formats from third party vendors, but the Intelwireless LAN portion of Centrino is only 802.11b compatible.

For the first time, AMD unveiled low-voltage mobile processors with performanceratings from 1800+ to 1400+ for the thin-and-light notebook market. Prices rangefrom $71 to $147 depending on performance grade.

AMD also introduced higher-end mobile processors for full-size notebooks withperformance ratings up to 2600+. These MPUs have 640Kbytes of on-die cache, andare priced from $87 to $246.

Consumer-Elektronik hält auf der CeBIT Einzug

Geräte der Consumer-Elektronik werden immer mehr mit Intelligenz in Form von Prozessoren, Speicher und Software vollgepackt. Handys mit eingebauter Kamera oder MP3-fähige PDAs zeigen, wie sehr die Grenzen zwischen Unterhaltungselektronik, Nachrichtentechnik und IT verschwimmen. Den Vogel schießt wohl der koreanische Aussteller Imri ab: Er zeigt ein Smart-PDA-Phone” namens Lenio, das die Funktion eines Windows-PDA mit derjenigen eines CDMA-Mobiltelefons vereint und darüber hinaus mit einer Kamera ausgestattet ist; außerdem lässt sich das Gerät als Voice-Recorder nutzen. Und natürlich kommuniziert Lenio nicht nur via Mobilfunknetz, sondern auch über Bluetooth – von Infrarot- und seriellen Anschlüssen ganz zu schweigen. Für die nötige Rechenleistung sorgt übrigens ein XScale-Prozessor von Intel mit 400 MHz Takt.

Ein weiteres großes Thema, das die Unterhaltungselektronik mit der Informationstechnik verbindet, ist die Spracherkennung. Marktforscher betrachten dieses Segment mit großen Hoffnungen. So soll sich der europäische Markt für Spracherkennungs- und Synthetisierungssoftware in den nächsten vier Jahren verfünffachen, der US-Markt soll im gleichen Zeitraum immerhin um den Faktor 3,5 wachsen.

Beispiele für den Einsatz dieser Technologie sind auch auf der CeBIT zu sehen. Etwa bei dem kleinen Regensburger Unternehmen Speech Experts in Halle 11. Dort steht Hermine, die sprechende Waschmaschine. Das Haushaltsgerät wird über Sprachbefehle gesteuert, und es spricht auch selbst: Hermine erklärt auf Wunsch ihre Bedienungsanleitung mündlich. Notfalls gibt sie sogar Tipps für das richtige Sortieren der Wäsche.

LONDON — Enterprises should not jump on the 802.11g bandwagon until products based on a finalized version of the Wireless LAN specification are more readily available later this year or early 2004, market research group Gartner has warned.

Hynix has invested over $1.6 billion to date in the Eugene-based fab, which manufactures 256-megabit SDRAM and DDR DRAMs. The $100 million upgrade will enable Hynix to boost its DRAM production by 50%, said Farhad Tabrizi, vice president of worldwide marketing for the South Korean memory giant.
