Intel® Xeon® Processor with 512-KB L2 Cache, Intel E7500 Chipset
The Intel® Xeon™ Processor with 512 KB L2 Cache and Intel® E7500 Chipset Platform Design Guide documents Intel’s design recommendations for systems based on the Intel® Xeon™ Processor with 512 KB L2 Cache and the E7500 chipset. In addition to providing motherboard design recommendations such as layout and ...routing guidelines, this document addresses 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 simulation work done at Intel while developing Intel Xeon processor with 512 KB L2 cache/E7500 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 remain the same for most E7500 chipset-based platforms. The schematic set provides a reference schematic for each E7500 chipset component as well as common motherboard options. Additional flexibility is possible through other permutations of these options and components.
