Core-Duo Processor
With its two execution cores, the Intel Core Duo processor is optimized for multi-threaded applications and multitasking. You can simultaneously run multiple demanding applications such as graphics-intensive programs or serious number-crunching routines - while downloading files or running virus-scanning security programs in the background. The CPU 41-10 uses a 1.66 GHz BGA processor that runs at only 15 Watts. This low power performance ideally suits it to embedded, industrial applications where high bandwidth processing is required.
 
E7520 Memory Controller Hub
The Intel E7520 chipset acts as the central hub for all data passing between the core system elements including processor, memory, PCI Express I/O, and legacy I/O subsystems. The Intel® E7520 chipset enables a variety of high-performance, low-power designs with improved platform reliability and system manageability. This chipset utilizes revolutionary PCI Express1 serial I/O technology and next-generation DDR2 memory technology to help increase I/O bandwidth and reduce system latency for data-intensive applications. The 533 MHz bus allows this chipset to support Intel® Core-Duo processors.
6300ESB I/O Controller Hub
The Intel® 6300ESB I/O Controller Hub (ICH) supports legacy and more cutting edge I/O. It is designed for use with the Intel® E7520 Memory Controller Hub (MCH). Intel has integrated features into the 6300ESB ICH that offer the performance, stability and reliability customers require for embedded computing applications. It improves bandwidth via PCI-X 64/66 and PCI 32/33 support. It also provides port 60/64 emulation, dual UARTs, four USB 2.0 ports, two SATA ports, primary and secondary IDE, and a two-stage watchdog timer. The Intel 6300ESB ICH and associated drivers help reduce support and validation costs.
