Intel® Q35 Express Chipset for Embedded Computing: Brief
The Intel® Q35 Express Chipset addresses key requirements of many embedded computing designs, including quality graphics, low-power consumption, noise reduction, manageability, data protection, and security. When combined with the Intel® Core™ microarchitecture family of processors on 45nm and 65nm process technology, the platform helps embedded equipment manufacturers deploy exceptionally responsive, high-performance, low-power systems for interactive clients—i.e. point-of-sale terminals and interactive PCs—, industrial control and automation, gaming, print imaging, and network security applications.
The updated graphics memory controller hub features a low-power graphics core. With a total thermal design power (TDP) of 13 watts, and a lower idle of 5.5 watts, the Intel Q35 Express chipset provides a 50% power savings over the Intel® Q965 Express chipset (28 watts TDP). The I/O controller hub (ICH) is available in two SKUs: Intel® ICH9 and Intel ICH9 DO (digital office). A 1333 MHz system bus supports Intel® processors on 45nm.
Twelve Hi-Speed USB 2.0* ports and external SATA* (eSATA) port multiplier support on both ICH SKUs provide design flexibility, while Intel® Quiet System Technology regulates system and processor fan speeds for noise reduction. Additionally, the ICH9 DO supports Intel® Active Management 3.0 for remote manageability, and Intel® Rapid Recover Technology for data protection.
