AP-912 Pentium® III Xeon® Processor Power Distribution Guidelines

As computer performance demands increase, new, higher speed logic with increased density is developed to fulfill these needs. To reduce their overall power dissipation, modern microprocessors are being designed with lower voltage implementations. This in turn requires power supplies to provide lower voltages with higher current capability. Because of this, processor power is now becoming a significant portion of the system design, and demands special attention. Now more than ever, power distribution requires careful design practices. Pentium® III Xeon® processors have unique requirements for voltages supplied to them. Their bus implementation, called AGTL+ (Assisted Gunning Transceiver Logic+), requires a voltage supply of its own.
