Introduced as the industry's first architecture designed and optimized for information appliance (IA) systems, the GeodeLink architecture is the latest addition to the company's Geode x86-based technology. It provides a system infrastructure that begins with a signal interface and layers diagnostics, power management, software, design verification, and floor planning on top of a common starting point. Other features include an optimized UMA, a distributed switched-fabric interconnect, and active hardware power management. The memory controller supports 32 and 64 bits with 133 MHz SDRAM and 266 MHz DDR-SDRAM, respectively. Samples with bus speeds up to 266 MHz and processor clock speeds up to 400 MHz will be available this quarter.
