Power and Ground Pins

For clean, on-chip power distribution, the Pentium M processor has a large number of V
and V
(ground) inputs. All power pins must be connected to V

FSB Clock (BCLK[1:0]) and Processor Clocking

BCLK[1:0] directly controls the system bus interface speed as well as the core frequency of the
processor. As in previous generation processors, the Pentium M processor core frequency is a
multiple of the BCLK[1:0] frequency. In regards to processor clocking, the Pentium M processor
uses a differential clocking implementation.

Voltage Identification

The Pentium M processor uses six voltage identification pins, VID[5:0], to support automatic
selection of power supply voltages. The VID pins for the Pentium M processor are CMOS outputs
driven by the processor VID circuitry.
