Chip maker Freescale has been making a name for itself with low power ARM-based chips recently. But now the company is branching out into the x86 space with the introduction of an audio and power management chipset designed to work with Intel’s Moorestown platform.

Basically, you take an Intel Atom Z6xx chip, add Freescale’s PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit), and you should end up with better power management and longer battery life in mobile devices including tablets and smartphones.

The chipset has integrated audio capabilities as well as integrated USB< charging, LED backlight, and other features.
