Design Note #14
Dialogic Corporation, an Intel Corporation Subsidiary and worldwide telecommunications industry leader, engaged Orchid Technologies to perform the electronics and firmware design of their new Private Branch Exchange telecommunications motherboard, code named, “Orange Grove.”
Today’s software development demands fast-running hardware schedules. With a hardware design and development cycle of eight weeks, Orchid faced the task of implementing the Pentium core and its support circuitry while simultaneously accommodating two daughter boards, rotating media storage and a face plate.
With board area at a premium, this efficient Low Power Pentium design is implemented within a minimum of circuit board area. Add a Dual-Port Memory Protocol Co-processor, Compact Flash Disk, 100Base-T Ethernet, and Modem On-Board, this board sings.
