Vortex86MXPLUS

The CPU for ULPC.

Overview

Vortex86MXPLUS is a high performance and fully static 32-bit X86 processor with compatibility of Windows based, Linux and most popular 32-bit RTOS.

Main Features

  • 32KB write through 4-way L1 cache
  • 256KB write through/write back 4-way L2 cache
  • PCI rev. 2.1 32-bit bus interface at 33 MHz
  • DDR2
  • ROM controller
  • IPC(Internal Peripheral Controllers with DMA and interrupt timer/counter included)
  • Fast Ethernet
  • FIFO UART
  • USB2.0 Host and IDE controller within a single 720-pin BGA package to from a system-on-a-chip(SoC)
It provides an ideal solution for the embedded for the embedded system and communications products (such as thin client, NAT router, home gateway, access point and tablet PC) to bring about desired performance.
