Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor, Intel® E7205 Chipset: Design Guide
Platform Design Guide: For Use with Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor with 512-KB L2 Cache on 0.13 Micron Process, December 2002
The Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor and Intel® E7205 Chipset Platform Design Guide describes Intel’s design recommendations for systems that are based on the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with 512-KB L2 cache on 0.13 micron process and the Intel® E7205 chipset. The document provides motherboard design recommendations such as layout and routing guidelines, and addresses other system design issues such as power delivery. For specific design issues (for example, thermal considerations), refer to the design guides and application notes listed in Section 1.1, “Reference Documentation.”
In this document, “processor “and “chipset” refer to the Pentium 4 processor with 512-KB L2 cache on 0.13 micron process and the E7205 chipset. Where a reference is intended to refer to a specific processor, the specific processor is listed. The Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor and Intel® E7205 Chipset Platform Design Guide has been developed to ensure maximum flexibility for board designers, while reducing board design risks. The design information provided in this document falls under one of the two following categories:
• Design Recommendations. These are items that are based on Intel’s simulations and lab experience, are strongly recommended, and may be necessary to meet timing and signal quality specifications.
• Design Considerations. These are suggestions for platform design that provide one way to meet the design recommendations. They are based on the reference platforms designed by Intel and should be used as examples, but may not be applicable to specific designs.
Note: The guidelines recommended in this document are based on experience, simulation, and validation work performed by Intel during development of Pentium 4 processors with 512-KB L2 cache on 0.13 micron process / E7205 chipset-based systems. This work is ongoing, and the recommendations are subject to change.
