Moorestown (computing platform)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Moorestown is the Intel Corporation's handheld MID and smartphone platform based on Lincroft system-on-a-chip with an Atom processor core, Langwell input/output Platform Controller Hub (I/O PCH), and a Briertown Power Management IC.[1][2] Announced in 2010, the platform was demonstrated running Moblin Linux.[3]

The Moorestown platform introduced the Simple Firmware Interface (SFI), a lightweight alternative to ACPI. In Linux 5.12, support for SFI, which was previously marked as obsolete, was removed from the kernel by Intel.[4][5]
