The Apollo Lake platform is Intel Atom™ based. Apollo Lake is the successor of Braswell platform. Apollo lake CPUs are designed for low power small size applications such as Netbook, Tablet PC and Industrial PC applications. The serial BUS communication is based on IMVP8 protocol. Richtek has several solutions for the Apollo Lake platform: Discrete solutions using separate IMVP8 VCORE controllers and buck converters and an integrated PMIC solution which offers lower component count and lower quiescent current for space-constrained PCBs and battery powered applications.
