Intel E640 / E640T Atom™ Processors

Intel E640/E640T Atom™ Processors are next-generation Intel architecture (IA) CPUs for the small form factor, ultra low power embedded segments based on a new architecture partitioning. The new architecture partitioning integrates the 3D graphics engine, memory controller, and other blocks with the IA CPU core.

The E640 Series processors depart from the proprietary chip set interfaces used by other IA CPUs to an open-standard, industry-proven PCI-Express* v1.0 interface. This allows the processors to be paired with customer-defined IOH, ASIC, FPGA, and off-the-shelf discrete components, providing utmost flexibility in I/O solutions. This is important for deeply embedded applications, in which I/Os differ from one application to another, unlike traditional PC-like applications.
