Vortex86 Series SoC Overview
The Vortex86 System-On-Chip (SoC) family was originally designed to provide product migration path to the existing user of the DMP M6117D SoC, a 40 Mhz x86 SoC introduced to the market in the early 1990s that reached end-of-life in 2007.
The Vortex86 SoC Family includes the Vortex86SX, Vortex86DX and upcoming Vortex86MX. All three are 32-bit x86 processors designed for ultra low power consumption. Both the Vortex86SX and Vortex86DX integrate the North & South bridges, LPC, 5 serial ports, USB 2.0 OTG, Ultra-DMA IDE, 10/100M Ethernet, SPI, I2C, PWM, GPIO, and JTAG interface into a single chip design in a tight 27mm x 27mm 581-pin BGA package.
With a core design based on matured x86 CPU architecture, a rich set of integrated I/O, and designed to function in extreme temperatures ranging -40 to +85 , these SoCs provide the ideal hardware platform for designing the next generation of industrial single board computeres, embedded controllers, and other embedded devices.
