This document is about the systemization of an embedded processor board using an Intel E6x5C processor. The thesis was written at Budapest University of Technology and Economics Department of Telecommunications.

The main goal of this document is to describe the systemization of an embedded board, which applies the processor in question. This is the first step in the design of a complex system.In this case the systemization contains the specification of the needed additional hardware components, and the description of the tasks for the integrated FPGA. In the FPGA design process it is important to have the whole picture about the requirements and tasks in the early phase of the development. Furthermore the needed functions must have a proposal for the actual implementation and the external interfaces must be specified. From these inputs a more or less precise early analysis can be done regarding the power usage, heat dissipation and resource usage. With this the requirements against the hardware and software can be specified.

The document is written about a QSeven based embedded board, with the hardware, FPGA and software questions. The FPGA part is very important; especially the early design analysis, because it has a very serious effect on the actual realization.

The main question of this document is, that is the Atom E6x5C product an optimal solution for telecommunication systems, with the advantages and possible problems.
