Vortex86 Family Overview



The Vortex86EX is a high performance and fully static 32-bit X86 processor with the compatibility of Windows based, Linux and most popular 32-bit RTOS.
It also integrates 16KB write through 4-way L1 cache, 128KB write through/write back 4-way L2 cache, PCIE bus in at 2.5 GHz, DDR3, ROM controller, xISA, I2C, SPI, IPC (Internal Peripheral Controllers with DMA and interrupt timer/counter included), Fast Ethernet, FIFO UART, USB2.0 Host and SD/SATA controller within a single 288-pin LBGA package to form a system-on-a-chip (SOC). It provides an ideal solution for the embedded system to bring about desired performance.
