AMD has two new embedded processors based on the vendor's 0.18-micron technology.

The K6-2E+ and K6-IIIE+ processors target embedded applications, including set-top boxes, Internet access devices, server appliances, thin client PCs, POS (point-of-sale) terminals and telecommunications equipment, AMD said in a statement.

The standard-power K6-2E+ processor will be available at clock speeds of 400MHz, 450MHz and 500MHz with a low-power version available for frequencies as low as 350MHz.

The K6-IIIE+ will stretch up to a maximum clock speed of 550MHz with a lower power version accommodating processing capabilities as low as 400MHz.

AMD said both processors improve on its previous K6 products offering both higher available frequencies and lower operating core voltages.
