ARK | Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
A: For most products, the ARK specification page contains a link to "Datasheet." The datasheet typically contains very detailed technical specifications for a product.Q: Does ARK provide a web service I can reference in my app to call ARK data?
A: ARK data is available via API for users with an API key. Information on the ARK API is located at http://odata.intel.com/ Here you'll find documentation on how to use the API, a list of the ARK API entities available, and a link to the online API key request form.Q: Where can I go to purchase a product I have found in ARK?
A: Many processors are sold as components in OEM computing devices. In addition, some processors and most SSD’s and motherboards are sold individually packaged. The Shop pages at http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/buy/for-home.html for home, and http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/buy/for-business.html for business have information on where to buy OEM systems as well as boxed products. Intel products are also sold through a network of authorized resellers. Search distributors in your area here: http://www.intel.com/go/buyauthorizedQ: Is ARK available for use on mobile devices?
A: Yes, ARK is currently available as a mobile-optimized website at http://ark.intel.com/m and via mobile app with offline access for iOS*, Android*, and Windows*. Search "Intel ARK" on iTunes*, Google* Play, and Windows* App Store.Q: When is this website updated?
A: Much of the data is updated daily from Intel's Enterprise data stores.Q: What's the difference between Max TDP and Stepping TDP?
A: For processors, the TDP will sometimes vary depending on the stepping of the processor. The Max TDP is the highest TDP value of all the steppings. Stepping TDP is the TDP for that particular stepping of the processor.Q: What does "Embedded Options Available" mean?
A: Embedded Options Available indicates products that offer extended purchase availability for intelligent systems and embedded solutions. See your Intel sales contact for details.Q: What does “Embedded” mean?
A: Embedded indicates that Intel anticipates shipping the product for an extended period of time. Embedded parts typically need to be procurable for 7+ years, whereas standard parts are typically procurable for 2+ years.Q: What does Low Halogen Mean?
A: Low Halogen implies the following: Bromine and/or chlorine in materials that may be used during processing, but do not remain within the final product are not included in this definition. The halogens fluorine (F), iodine (I), and astatine (At) are not restricted by this standard. “BFR/CFR and PVC-Free” Definition: An article must meet all of the following requirements to be defined as “BFR/CFR and PVC-Free”: 1) All PCB laminates must meet Br and Cl requirements for low halogen as defined in IPC-4101B 2) For components other than PCB laminates, all homogeneous materials must contain < 900 ppm (0.09%) of Bromine [if the Bromine (Br) source is from BFRs] and < 900 ppm (0.09%) of Chlorine [if the Chlorine (Cl) source is from CFRs or PVC. Higher concentrations of Br and Cl are allowed in homogenous materials of components other than PCB laminates as long as their sources are not BFRs, CFRs, PVC. 3) Although the elemental analysis for Br and Cl in homogeneous materials can be performed by any analytical method with sufficient sensitivity and selectivity, the presence or absence of BFRs, CFRs or PVC must be verified by any acceptable analytical techniques that allow for the unequivocal identification of the specific Br or Cl compounds, or by appropriate material declarations agreed to between customer and supplier.Q: What does the acronym ARK stand for?
A: Automated Relational Knowledgebase. ARK provides automated access to the relational database that drives Intel’s Corporate Product Catalog; delivering on-demand product characteristics, features, relationships and product comparisons.Q: Who should I contact if I find an error or want more information?
A: To provide feedback or request information: ARK_Support@intel.com . Optionally, use the "Send Feedback" link on the left hand side of each page.
