Intel® Xeon® Processor, Intel® E7505 Chipset: Design Guide
Intel® Xeon® Processor and Intel® E7505 Chipset Platform Design Guide: For Use with Intel® Xeon® Processor with 512-KB L2 Cache and Intel® Xeon® Processor with 533 MHz System Bus. December 2002
The Intel® Xeon® Processor and Intel® E7505 Chipset Platform Design Guide describes Intel's design recommendations for systems that are based on the Intel Xeon processor with 512-KB L2 cache, Intel Xeon processor with 533 MHz System Bus, and the Intel E7505 chipset. The document provides motherboard design recommendations, such as layout and routing guidelines, and addresses other system design issues such as power delivery. For specific design issues such as thermal considerations, refer to the design guides and application notes listed in Section 1.1, “Reference Documentation”.
In this document, “processor” and “chipset” refer to the Intel Xeon processor with 512-KB L2 cache, Intel Xeon processor with 533 MHz System Bus, and the E7505 chipset. Where a reference is intended to refer to a specific processor, the specific processor is listed. The Intel Xeon Processor / Intel E7505 Chipset Platform Design Guide has been developed to ensure maximum flexibility for board designers, while reducing board design risks. The design information provided in this document falls under one of the two following categories:
• Design Recommendations. These are items that are based on Intel’s simulations and lab experience, are strongly recommended, and may be necessary to meet timing and signal quality specifications.
• Design Considerations. These are suggestions for platform design that provide one way to meet the design recommendations. They are based on the reference platforms designed by Intel and should be used as examples, but may not be applicable to specific designs.
