Intel AtomProcessor N270

You has to use this processor for About Intel India Embedded Challenge .

I get some note about this go through its specifications which is given below
The Intel Atom processor N270,implemented in 45nm technology, is power-optimized and delivers robust performance-per-watt for cost-effective embedded solutions. Featuring extended lifecycle support, this processor 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 commercial and industrial control. The processor remains software compatible with previous 32-bit Intel architecture
and complementary silicon. This single-core processor is validated with the Mobile Intel
945GSE Express chipset, consisting of the Intel 82945GSE Graphics Memory Controller Hub and Intel I/O Controller Hub 7-M. The chipset features power-efficient graphics with an
integrated 32-bit 3D graphics engine based on Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 architecture with SDVO, LVDS, CRT, and TV-Out display ports. It provides rich I/O capabilities and flexibility via high-bandwidth interfaces such as PCI Express,* PCI, Serial ATA, and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connectivity. It also includes a single channel for 400/533 MHz DDR2 system memory (SODIMM or memory down), and Intel High Definition Audio1 interface.

• Intel’s hafnium-based 45nm Hi-k metal gate silicon process technology reduces power consumption, increases switching speed, and significantly increases transistor density over previous 65nm technology

• Hyper-Threading Technology3 (two threads) provides high performance-per-watt efficiency in an in-order pipeline and increased system responsiveness in multi-tasking environments. One execution core is seen as two logical processors, and parallel threads are executed on a single core with shared resources

• Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology reduces average system power consumption

• Enhanced low-power sleep states (C1E, C2E, C4E) are optimized for power by forcibly reducing the performance state of the processor when it enters a package low-power state

• Dynamic L2 cache sizing reduces leakage due to transistor sleep mode

• Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) 2 and Intel® SSE3 enable software to accelerate data processing in specific areas, such as complex arithmetic and video decoding

• FSB lane reversal enables flexible routing

• Execute Disable Bit4 prevents certain classes of malicious “buffer overflow” attacks

• Along with a strong ecosystem of hardware and software vendors, including members of the Intel® Embedded and Communications Alliance (, Intel helps cost-effectively meet development challenges and speed time-to-market

• Embedded lifecycle support protects system investment by enabling extended product availability for embedded customers
