  Intel unveils chip design for handhelds
Called the Intel XScale microarchitecture, the design is based on Intel's existing StrongARM chip but offers much lower levels of power consumption, a crucial consideration for wireless handheld devices, said Ron Smith, vice president and general manager of Intel's wireless computing and communications group, during a keynote at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) here.
XScale appears to represent a new brand name for the follow-on StrongARM chip that observers had expected to be called the StrongARM 2.
Intel licenses the ARM core from chip design company ARM Holdings of the U.K. If XScale is based on ARM, Intel will continue to pay a royalty fee to ARM for each XScale product that it sells, the analyst noted.

  Intel XScale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The XScale core is Intel's implementation of the 25th generation of the ARM architecture based on the v5TE ISA without the floating point instructions.
All the generations of XScale are 32-bit ARM v5TE processors manufactured with a 0.18 µm process and have a 32kb data cache and a 32kb instruction cache (this would be called a 64kb Level 1 cache on other processors).
The XSCALE core is used in a number of microcontroller families manufactured by Intel: notably Application Processors (with the prefix PXA), I/O Processors (with the prefix IOP), Network Processors (with the prefix IXP) and Control Plane Processors (with the prefix IXC).
