Dabei verbraucht es mit 350 Milliwatt auch noch deutlich weniger Energie als die meisten seiner Konkurrenten – bei diesen ist ein Leistungsbedarf von 800 bis 900 Milliwatt keine Seltenheit; allerdings enthalten sie meist auch noch Schaltungen für die Anpassung an Sonet- beziehungsweise SDH-Infrastrkturen.

Standards setting has been used for a lot of hard game playing,” said Scott Peterson, senior counsel for intellectual property at Hewlett-Packard Co.

One proposal has been to urge standards groups to adopt good faith and fair dealing” rules to prevent gaming. But Peterson and other industry attorneys said convincing companies to disclose all of the relevant patents to standards groups is not a viable goal.

Incremental progress is possible,” Peterson said. We can gradually develop experience with different [patent disclosure] rules and get a sense of what rules work best.”

The stakes are high, particularly in the Rambus case where some experts estimate the company could collect royalties totaling as much as $5 billion for its patented RDRAM technology. Rambus filed a countersuit in May seeking $1 billion in damages from its DRAM rivals. It alleged they have tried to sabotage” its memory technology since the mid-1990s.

A Federal Trade Commission administrative law judge has dismissed the agency's antitrust case against Rambus, ruling in February that Rambus acquired monopoly power in a long-running patent dispute, but did not do so by exclusionary means.

M. Sean Royall, former FTC lead counsel in the Rambus case, said the antitrust action doesn't mean the FTC is going to tell [standards groups] how to operate.”

Royall said the case sought to highlight how the chip industry has become locked in” to an industry spec based largely on Rambus patents. Rambus has argued that industry specs can be changed at little cost on an individual company basis. The FTC counters that standards are critical for achieving compatibility between products, a feature that benefits consumers.

The industry is locked in, it can't change these standards” based largely on Rambus patents, Royall told the conference.

Royall said FTC antitrust attorneys are still reviewing the Rambus decision and will present initial arguments next week to the five-member FTC, which must still review the February ruling. Final arguments are scheduled in December.

Significantly, Strategic Test is also releasing a development kit that lets the TRITON-270 run out-of-the-box with Linux kernel 2.6, or Windows CE 5.0 operating systems pre-installed. TRITON modules are also supplied with the RedBoot operating system boot loader. It's also pre-installed.

For its part, the PXA270 is the first Intel XScale processor to include so-called Intel Wireless MMX . It enables multi-media acceleration based on the Pentium instruction set.

The PXA270 also imparts Intel's Quick Capture . It's a camera interface for capturing digital images and video. Finally, the PXA270 also includes the new Wireless Intel SpeedStep Technology for very low-power operation.

A standard TRITON-270 module is supplied with a 512-MHz PXA270 microprocessor, 64 Mbytes of 1.8-V low-power mobile SDRAM, and 16 Mbytes of 1.8-V flash. The block diagram will give you insight as to how much is packed into this ultra-small product.
