I have not seen this information available at this time, I know we have the Alphabetical Ballout listing in the SoC X1000 datasheet, I will search more information, if I find something I will let you know.
This is the link for the SoC X1000 documents, in case you want to double check the available information.
Yes, I am aware of the pin name to ball number tables in the Quark data sheet. These are a great start but do not actually give too much more information than can be seen by looking at the Quark schematic symbol in the Galileo board schematic.
Obviously for a CAD system implementation of the Quark onto a PC board it is essentlal to have both the other important pieces of information regarding each pad - the pad numbers on the package drawing and the X / Y coodinate of each pad relative to some specified referece point.
On some BGA packages the rows and columns follow a regular pattern that can be specified with a simple label on the package drawing that specifies Row A, Row B etc and Col 1, Col 2 etc. And then just a couple of dimensions on the same drawing can specify the pad locations. The Quark on the other hand uses a very irregular pattern. Dimensions are anything but regular. There is no concept of uniform rows and columns of pad locations and on Quark many of the RowCol callouts for pads do not even exist. There is not even a pin A1 for that matter.
What this means is there needs to be a spreadsheet or text file table that specifies each of the following for each Quark Ball.
BallNumber / BallName / BallXCoord / BallYCoord.
Along with that it is needed to specify some known point on the package as the reference point for the Ball coordinate system.
Hello JPMontero_Intel. I'm looking for this documentation as well. I cannot find the ball out informaiton anywhere. Can you tell me please where can I find the the latest revision of : “Intel ® Quark™ SoC X1000 – Ball Out and Mechanical Package.pdf”? There is a reference to it from the following doc: “http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/guides/quark-x1000-thermal-mechanical-design-guide.pdf” on page 6. I was unable to find it on the Intel site.
As a side note, is Intel providing any ready libraries (symbol, mapping, footprint) for this chip?
Much obliged for any assistance that you can provide.
I apologize for the delay in my response. This site has all the public available documentation for Quark, including the latest Mechanical Design Guide. Section 3 of Intel Quark SoC X1000 Datasheet,Intel Quark Package Mechanical Drawing and Intel Quark Thermal & Mechanical Design Guide cover this information and this is all that is currently available.
