The article features the SEAforth-24 wireless platform from IntellaSys in the United States. It is the first chip in the firm's platform of Scalable Embedded Array multicore processors and is well suited for portable and embedded wireless applications. The SEAforth-24 chip has 24 core processors with power dissipation of 150 mW and a processing speed of one billion instructions per second for typical applications. Its independent on-chip cores can also handle specific tasks, such as intensive audio processing and handling wireless/USB interfaces.
