Intel's System-on-Chip (SoC) Designs Address Thermal Issues

Intel is developing system-on-chip (SoC) designs that combine multiple functions such as graphics processing, wireless communications and general computations on a single chip for use in smart phones, netbooks and other mobile devices. To address thermal issues, these SoC devices include on-chip temperature sensing to allow off-loading of tasks to different parts of the chip to prevent heat related damage. Lower operating voltages are also being implemented in the designs to reduce power consumption, another key thermal driver. Read more at: Intel's New Breed of Chips
