VIA paves path to enhanced processor security

Thursday, 20 May 2004, 6:07 AM EST

Taiwanese chipmaker VIA has released details of its next-generation C5J Esther processor core, which is intended to bring security in addition to low heat and power consumption to small, low-priced embedded devices.

VIA, which unveiled the new power-efficient processor core at the Embedded Processor Forum in San Jose, California, this week, said the silicon will be manufactured with IBM's 90-nanometer process at Big Blue's foundry in East Fishkill, New York, and optimized for security and e-commerce transactions.

"Our approach to processor design allows small, fanless devices to carry out the most demanding security operations while simultaneously processing today's increasingly sophisticated digital entertainment applications," said Glenn Henry, president of Centaur Technology, a company recently acquired by VIA and producer of the new core.
