Transmeta shows Crusoe flexibility

  1. Though we have all heard of Transmeta and their low power consumption CPUs, it wasn't until a few months ago that they started to see some real action on Tablet PC products.
    Today they have announced a fan-less version of the Crusoe processor that will be used in more specific applications.

    The Crusoe SE processors are similar to the company's notebook chips but will be incorporated into a wider variety of nontraditional devices, such as point-of-display terminals or in-car entertainment systems. Embedded chips typically perform a limited number of functions and run only a few software applications, but must be far more resistant to breakdowns and environmental hazards, such as dust, than PC chips.
