IXP45X/IXP46X Product Line: Thermal Design App Note

This document describes the thermal characteristics for the IXP45X and IXP46X product lines. This document is used to properly design a thermal solution for systems implementing the following IXP45X/IXP46X product line parts:
• Intel XScale® processor frequency 667 MHz.
• Intel XScale® processor frequency 533 MHz.

Properly designed solutions must provide adequate cooling to maintain the IXP45X/IXP46X product line case temperature (TCASE) at or below the values listed in Table 1. Ideally, this is accomplished by providing a low local ambient temperature and creating a minimal thermal resistance to that local ambient temperature.
