1.1 OVERVIEW OF INTEL CENTRINO MOBILE TECHNOLOGY:
Intel is expanding its history of innovations with new notebook PC capabilities designed specifically for the mobile world. This technology allows users to work, play and connect without wires and choose from a whole new world of thin and light notebook PCs that are designed to enable extended battery life.
This new innovative technology delivers breakthrough mobile performance and low power enhancements to enable extended battery life in notebook PCs, combined with integrated wireless LAN capability and standards based security support.
With Intel®Centrino mobile technology, three components work together to deliver a breakthrough in freedom and capability-to work, learn and play on the go, these components include;
* Intel®Pentium® M Processor
* Intel® 855 chipset family
* Intel®PRO/Wireless network connection
The Intel Pentium M processor is offered at speeds of 1.30 GHz, 1.40 GHz, 1.50 GHz, 1.60 GHz and 1.70 GHz. In the Highest Frequency Mode(HFM), the notebook PCs can achieve high performance on the most complex business and Internet applications. The lowest frequency mode (LFM) speed on all processor is 600 MHz which reduces power consumption and enables extended battery life. The on demand performance switches between HFM, LFM and intermediate Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology operating points based on user needs, optimizing application performance and battery life.
When an Intel Pentium M processor is used in conjunction with the Intel® 855 chipset, the resulting platform provides reliable, balanced performance for today’s mainstream notebook PCs, with head room to remain productive as new applications emerge.The Intel® 855 chipset family offers support for DDR memory technology and offers a system bus frequency of 400 MHz.
The integrated Wi-Fi Certified Intel PRO/wireless 2100 network connection has been validated to work with all of the Intel Centrino Mobile Technology components and is interoperable with 802.11b Wi-Fi certified access points. It supports industry standards- based wireless LAN security such as 802.1x, WEP and WPA. Intel PRO/ wireless 2100 network connection also supports WLAN security enhancements for CISCO compatible extensions on certain models. Subject to PC manufactures availability and validation this enables interoperability with CISCO Aironet wireless LAN infrastructure.For comprehensive security...
