There are two models of Crusoe processors: TM3120 and TM5400
The TM3120 is intended for mobile client and web pad devices running Mobile Linux. It can run from 333MHz to 400MHz and resides on a 72mm^2 die. It features 64KB of L1 instruction cache and 32KB of L1 data cache, and supports 66MHz to 133MHz SDRAM. The TM3120 is currently in production.
The TM5400 is intended for lightweight and full-featured mobile PC's running Windows operating systems. It can run from 500MHz to 700MHz and resides on a 73mm^2 die. It features 64KB of L1 instruction cache, 64KB of L1 data cache and 256K of on-chip L2 cache. It supports 66MHz to 133MHz SDRAM as well as 100MHz to 166MHz DDR SDRAM. The TM5400 is currently sampling and will go into production in Mid-2000
The Crusoe is fabricated and packaged by IBM's Microelectronic Division on a .22 micron process. Both chips have an integrated northbridge, which is usually a separate part. The integrated northbridge supplies the PCI interface, the memory controller, and a serial I/O port for reading software from ROM (more on the ROM later).
[break]Ook een van de medewerkers van oom Tom legt een ei over Transmeta:[/break] Transmeta, the secretive semiconductor company from Santa Clara, finally introduced the first two chips of their new processor line named Crusoe at the end of January. With a different software-based design approach these processors promise to deliver high-performance at very little power consumption.
