AP-580 Voltage Guidelines For Pentium® Processors With MMX™ Technology

This document explains the voltage specifications, recommends solutions for supplying consistent power, and suggests validation techniques to ensure robust Pentium® processor with MMX™ technology-based systems. This application note is of particular importance due to the new core voltage of the Pentium processor with MMX technology. Its split voltage (2.8 V core; 3.3 V input/output) is in contrast to the Pentium processor's unified voltage (3.3 V core and input/output). Motherboard designs must be modified to accommodate the Pentium processor with MMX technology's new core voltage. Refer to Pentium Processor Flexible Motherboard Guidelines (order #243187) for additional information.
