The Braswell platform is Intel Atom™ based. These 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 VR12.1 protocol. Richtek has different solutions for the Braswell platform: Discrete solutions using separate VR12.1 VCORE controllers, a DDR converter and buck converters, and two integrated solutions (MOIC and PMIC). The PMIC solution offers the lowest component count, reduced board space and lowest quiescent current.
