Microprocessor products are integrated circuits used for information and data processing. They are differentiated from similar products that are considered microcontrollers primarily by the manufacturer’s choice of term, though by tradition microprocessors do not integrate working memory within the device, are less likely to integrate mixed-signal peripherals, and are likely to be used under more complex software paradigms involving the use of an operating system to manage the concomitant execution of multiple tasks.
Core Processor: Identifies the microprocessor or processor technology that serves as the primary computational engine for a board or device.
Number of Cores/Bus Width: Indicate the number of processing cores the device has and the number of bits that can be transferred in one cycle.
Speed: Indicate the clock frequency of the device. This directly influences the overall rate computations can be done in the device.
Co-Processors/DSP: Identifies an auxiliary/special-purpose computational engine integrated within the device.
RAM Controllers: Indicates the type(s) of standard memory with which a device is equipped to interact.
Graphics Acceleration: Indicates if the device has built dedicated 3D graphics processing hardware that can be used to offload such tasks.
Display & Interface Controllers: Enumerates features that facilitate human interaction, such as display or keypad interfaces.
Ethernet: Indicates whether or not a device includes provisions for Ethernet communications, and supported link speeds for those that do.
SATA: Indicates the presence of SATA-compliant interface peripheral(s) on the chip, and the quantity and nominal transfer performance thereof.
USB: Indicates the number and standard of Universal Serial Bus interfaces for which a device has provisions.
Voltage - I/O: Characterizes the supply voltage range over which a device’s external interface functions are specified to operate.
Operating Temperature: Recommended operating temperature, typically given in a range or as a maximum. Exceeding these temperatures may affect performance or damage the device and/or other system components.
Security Features: Enumerates device features useful for designing IP protection or implementing secure communication protocols.
Mounting Type: Indicates how the device is attached.
Package / Case: Describes the footprint and type of body the item has based on a general standard.
Supplier Device Package: Describes the footprint and type of body the item has based on what the manufacturer names it.
