MPC82xx Family Application Development System


Product Details



  • Supports MPC8260 (HiP4) and MPC8280 (HiP7) processor families
  • 64-bit PowerQUICC® II Communication Processor, running at up to 100MHz external bus frequency


  • 32 MByte Synchronous DRAM (soldered on-board), residing on 60X bus (PBI mode) with optional parity support, controlled by SDRAM machine 1
  • 8 MByte, 80-pin Flash SIMM, buffered from 60X bus. Support for up to 32 MByte, controlled by GPCM, 5 V / 12 V Programmable, with Automatic Flash SIMM identification, via BCSR. Support for both ON and OFF SIMM Flash reset
  • 8 KBytes E2PROM, buffered from the 60x bus, controlled by the GPCM
  • 8MByte Synchronous DRAM (soldered on-board), residing on local bus with optional parity support, controlled by SDRAM machine 2


  • On-board COP/JTAG connector
  • On-board logic to support direct connection to standard Parallel Port (EPP/SPP modes) in desktop PC for debugging purposes using Code Warrior tools
  • PCI Local Bus is PCI Standard 2.2 compliant
  • 3 PCI slots are available to host up to three leaders/targets cards at 3.3 V only--arbitration is supported by the on-chip arbiter
  • PCI bus supports 25-66 MHz at 3.3 V devices (determined by the user)
  • Simple generic Interrupt Controller to handle the PCI interrupts (four in each PCI slot)
  • Module Enable Indications for all on-board modules
  • High density (MICTOR) Logic Analyzer connectors, carrying all 60x, local bus and CPM signals, for fast logic analyzer connection
  • 155 Mbps ATM UNI on FCC1 with Optical I/F, connected to the PQ2 via UTOPIA Level 2 I/F supporting 8/16 bit in single/multi PHY, using the PMC-SIERA 5384
  • Two 100/10-Base-T Ports on FCC2 and FCC3 with T.P. I/F, MII/RMII controlled, using Davicom DM9161
  • USB Port, USB 1.1 Standard Compliant, using Philips PDIUSBP11 USB transceiver. USB Port is with shutdown option and speed selectable--BCSR controlled
  • Dual RS232 port residing on SCC1 and SCC2

Power Management

  • 5 V / 12 V VPP (in-circuit programming voltage) for Flash SIMM - jumper selectable
  • ATX Power Supply
  • Multi-Range PQ2 internal logic operation voltage--selectable by jumper between three ranges--1.3 V to 1.7 V for MPC8280 (HiP7), 1.7 V to 1.9 V for PQ2 (HiP4) or 2.3 V to 2.7 V for MPC8260 (HiP3)

Expansion Ports

  • Dedicated PQ2 communication ports expansion connectors for convenient tools connection, carrying necessary bus signals for transceivers' M/P I/F connection. Use is done with 2 X 128 pin DIN 41612 receptacle connectors

Tools and OS Support

  • External Tools' identification and status read capability, via BCSR
  • Software Option Switch provides 8 S/W options via BCSR
  • Module disable (i.e., low-power mode) option for all communication transceivers--BCSR controlled, enabling the use of communication ports, off-board via the expansion connectors
  • Board Control and Status Register--BCSR
  • Programmable Power-On Reset and Hard-Reset Configuration via E2PROM or via Flash memory for the PQ2 core
  • Power-On Reset Option via JTAG
  • Selectable Local bus function--Local Bus SDRAM connection or PCI bus in host mode
  • Separate Power-On Reset Push--Button, Soft/Hard1 Reset Push--Button and ABORT Push--Button
