The lntel Atom processor E6xx series delivers an unprecedented level of I/O flexibility, departing from proprietary interfaces such as FSB and DMl and moving to the open PClExpress* standard for processor-to-chipset interfaces. Processors in this series can be paired with the lntel Platform Controller Hub EG20T or I/O hubs from a variety of third-party vendors to meet the specific I/O requirements of many embedded applications such as in-vehicle infotainment systems, media phones and connected services gateways. The Intel Platform Controller Hub EG20T integrates a range of common I/O blocks required in many market segments such as industrial automation, retail, gaming, and digital signage. These incIude SATA. USB client, SD/SDIO/MMC, and Gigabit Ethernet MAC. as well as general embedded interfaces such as CAN, IEEE* 1588, SPI, I2C, UART, and GPIO. For applications requiring a minimum of I/O interfaces, developers can also use discrete PCle* devices such as PCle-GbE controllers or PCIe-SATA controllers instead of an I/O hub.
