You have a Cherry Trail processor which is a close cousin to Bay Trail I believe. In any case you are likely suffering from the Bay Trail bug which can be fixed by editing the grub boot loader configuration using:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Find the line containing GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

Add a space and intel_idle.max_cstate=1 after splash and before the closing double quote.

Save the file and exit the nano editor.

Run sudo update-grub


Others with your Atom processor didn’t have any luck though: Ubuntu freezes on intel atom

I’m hoping this common solution will work for you though. Search in Ask Ubuntu using intel_idle.max_cstate=1 for lots of examples.
