Intel® 875P/E7210/6300ESB Chipset Platform
Design Guide: For use with the Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor and Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor with Hyper-Threading Technology
This design guide documents Intel’s design recommendations for systems based on the Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor and Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor with Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) and the Intel® 875P Memory Controller Hub (MCH)/Intel® E7210 MCH/Intel® 6300ESB I/O Controller Hub (ICH) chipset. In addition to providing motherboard design recommendations such as layout and routing guidelines, this document will also address other system design issues such as power delivery.
Carefully follow the design information, board schematics, debug recommendations, and system checklists provided in this document. These design guidelines have been developed to ensure maximum flexibility for board designers while reducing the risk of board related issues.
Note that the guidelines recommended in this document are based on experience and preliminary simulation work done at Intel while developing the Pentium 4 / Pentium 4 with Intel HT Technology and 875P MCH/E7210 MCH/6300ESB ICH chipset-based systems. This work is ongoing, and the recommendations are subject to change.
Board designers may use the associated Intel schematics as a reference. While the schematics cover a specific design implementation, the core schematics will remain the same for most 875P MCH/ 6300ESB ICH chipset-based platforms. The schematic set provides a reference schematic for each 875P MCH/6300ESB ICH chipset component as well as common motherboard options. Additional flexibility is possible through other permutations of these options and components.
