Intel® EP80579 Integrated Processor with Intel® QuickAssist Technology.
Complete System-on-a-Chip for Security, Communications, Storage and Embedded Designs
Based on Intel® architecture, the Intel® EP80579 Integrated Processor with Intel® QuickAssist Technology is among the first series of breakthrough system-on-a-chip (SOC) processors, delivering excellent performance-per-watt for small form factor designs in security, communications, storage and embedded applications. This fully pin-compatible product line also includes fhe Intel® EP80579 Integrated Processor.
This SOC processor delivers a significant leap in architectural design, providing an outstanding combination of performance, power efficiency, footprint savings and cost-effectiveness compared to discrete, multi-chip solutions. Featuring embedded lifecycle support, it is ideal for a wide range of applications such as small-to-medium business (SMB) and enterprise security appliances (including VPN/firewall and unified threat management), wireless and WiMax access applications, SMB and home network attached storage, converged IP PBX solutions, converged access platforms, IP media servers and VoIP gateways.
This single-chip design includes an Intel architecture complex based on the Intel® Pentium® M processor, integrated memory controller hub, integrated I/O controller hub and flexible integrated I/O support with three Ethernet MACs, two Controller Area Network (CAN) interfaces and a local expansion bus interface. The design also includes PCI Express*, High Speed Serial1 (HSS) ports for TDM or analog voice connectivity, security accelerators for bulk encryption, hashing and public/private key generation, and data path and TDM acceleration.
The Intel QuickAssist Technology initiative consists of a family of interrelated Intel and industry standard technologies that simplify the use and deployment of accelerators on Intel® platforms. The integrated accelerators in this SOC processor support Intel QuickAssist Technology through software packages provided by Intel. These software packages provide the library structures to integrate security and/or VoIP functionality into the application, completely adjunct to the Intel architecture complex, freeing up CPU cycles to support additional features and capabilities. This
provides the efficiency of customized hardware with the flexibility to design diverse applications with one platform.
The Intel EP80579 Integrated Processor with Intel QuickAssist Technology includes multiple product offerings with a range of core speeds and thermal design power2 (TDP), along with an industrial temperature option ideal for communications solutions in unconstrained thermal environments. The processor is software-compatible with previous members of the Intel® microprocessor family, enabling smooth migrations for current x86 developments.
