We’ve obtained more information on Intel’s Internet of Things (IoT) system on a chip (SoC), Quark Seal Beach. The existence of the chip was already reported by CPU-World and we received additional information with slides of a confidential Intel presentation. The successor of the upcoming Liffy Island SoC also has a single core processor core running at 533Mhz and Seal Beach also integrates a DDR3 memory controller and 64KB L1 cache .
Seal Beach SoC’s will have an integrated display controller which can be used for both 2D and 3D graphics. Intel might integrate a touch controller in Seal Beach chips according to the slide. One feature that appears to be certain is hardware accelerated cryptography which should result in fast boots and additional security.
The Seal Beach SoC is currently the last known Intel Quark SoC. The chip follows Liffy Island which should be released in the second half of 2015, which in its turn is the successor of the Intel Quark X1000, planned for the first half of 2015.
