embedded solutions. It features an integrated 32-bit 3D
•Dual independent display support, at graphics core
speeds up to 166 MHz, provides a wealth of options
for high-resolution displays
•Graphics interfaces such as single-channel SDVO, VGA,
graphics engine based on Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator
dual-channel LVDS and analog TV-out, support multiple
950 (Intel® GMA 950) architecture, a 533 MHz front-side bus
graphics display options
(FSB), single-channel 400/533 MHz DDR2 system memory
(SODIMM and/or memory down), and Intel® High Definition
Audio1 interface.
The chipset consists of the Intel® 82945GSE Graphics Memory
Controller Hub (GMCH) and Intel® I/O Controller Hub 7-M (ICH7-M).
It delivers outstanding system performance and flexibility through
high-bandwidth interfaces such as PCI Express,* PCI, Serial ATA,
and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connectivity.
Designed for and validated with the Intel® Atom™ processor N270Δ
on 45nm process technology, this platform offers an excellent
solution for embedded market segments such as digital signage,
interactive clients (kiosks, point-of-sale terminals), thin clients,
digital security, residential gateways, print imaging, and com-
•Direct Media Interface (DMI) chip interconnect can be
implemented at x2 width and provides up to 500 MB/s
in each direction in full duplex
•Four UHCI host controllers and one EHCI host controller
enable support for up to eight USB 2.0 ports, providing highperformance peripherals with 480 Mb/s of bandwidth per port
•Up to four PCI Express ports, configurable as one single
x4 or four single x1 ports
•Up to six PCI bus masters provide support for legacy devices
•Intel High Definition Audio interface for full surround sound
•LAN Connect Interface (LCI) enables flexible network solutions
mercial and industrial control. It is part of Intel’s comprehensive
such as 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet and 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet with
validation process, enabling fast deployment of next-generation
LAN manageability
platforms to help developers maximize competitive advantage
while minimizing development risks.

1Intel® High Definition Audio requires a system with an appropriate Intel chipset and a motherboard with an appropriate codec and the necessary drivers installed. System sound quality will vary depending on actual
implementation, controller, codec, drivers and speakers. For more information about Intel® HD audio, refer to http://www.intel.com/.

Intel® Active Management Technology requires the platform to have an Intel® AMT-enabled chipset, network hardware and software, as well as connection with a power source and a corporate network connection.
With regard to notebooks, Intel AMT may not be available or certain capabilities may be limited over a host OS-based VPN or when connecting wirelessly, on battery power, sleeping, hibernating or powered off.
