    Default Intel CPU Datasheets - "Embedded Options Available" what does it mean?

    I was looking at different Intel mobile i5 CPU's and there is a field on the datasheet that says "embedded options available". Many have a "no" and only a few have "yes". What does this option mean and is it important?

    Embedded, as in soldered to the mainboard. BGA(Ball Grid Array) opposed to PGA(Pin Grid Array). BGA would not be upgrageable without alot of difficulty. PGA/non embedded is a better option

    Quick Reference List of all current Intel® Processors (ark.intel.com/sspecqdf.aspx)

    + You can reduce the list by picking filters, such as:

    • Embedded Support (those processors that have that longer life cycle support)
    • Code name (find only those that connected to the "Silverthorne" code name)

    • Brand (find only those that are part of the Intel® Xeon® brand)

    • Cores (find only the quad-core processors)

    • Socket (find only those that fit the LGA775 socket)

    Longer life cycle support? What does THAT mean? Just that it's a CPU they intend to build longer than others?

    Typically Intel will give you a minimum 7 year life cycle with an embedded version of a processor. This includes the ability to buy for that long, and get technical support from engineering as well. These are used in more industrial designs versus consumer grade designs.
