Intel® 6 Series Chipset and Intel® C200 Series Chipset Datasheet
This document is intended for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and BIOS vendors creating Intel® 6 Series Chipset and Intel® C200 series chipset-based products.
This manual assumes a working knowledge of the vocabulary and principles of PCI Express*, USB, AHCI, SATA, Intel® High Definition Audio (Intel® HD Audio), SMBus, PCI, ACPI, and LPC. Although some details of these features are described within this manual, refer to the individual industry specifications listed in Table 1-1 for the complete details.
All PCI buses, devices, and functions in this manual are abbreviated using the following nomenclature, Bus:Device:Function. This manual abbreviates buses as Bn, devices as Dn, and functions as Fn. For example, Device 31 Function 0 is abbreviated as D31:F0, and Bus 1 Device 8 Function 0 is abbreviated as B1:D8:F0. Generally, the bus number will not be used, and it can be considered to be Bus 0. Note that the PCH’s external PCI bus is typically Bus 1, but may be assigned a different number depending upon system configuration.
