Product Details



  • DDR2 on SODIMM and 533 MHz, 72-bit, 256 MB with 8-bit ECC support


  • PCI edge connector for agent mode with additional adapter (3.3 V and 5 V compatible)
  • PCI Express edge connector for agent mode with additional adapter
  • PCI host mode through PIB
  • Dual 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet ports for QUICC Engine® (UCC1 and UCC2)
  • Dual 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet ports for dual eTSEC
  • 4x SerDes connected to Serial RapidIO connector
  • 4x SerDes connected to PCI Express connectors through PCI Express MUX to support host or agent modes:
  • 4x PCI Express edge connector for agent mode can be plugged in a PC
  • 4x PCI Express slot connector for host mode accepts standard (off-the-shelf) PCI Express cards

Local Bus I/F:

  • 32-bit 64 MB SDRAM memory and 133 MHz soldered on board with parity support
  • 16-bit 32 MB NOR flash in a socket
  • Address latch, data, and control buffers to support slow devices on the PIB (and PMC boards)


  • Debug port access via COP connector

Two I2C buses

  • Bus for 256 kb EEPROM, real-time clock (RTC), SODIMM SPD EEPROM, BCSR, and PIB

Three operation modes:

  • Stand-alone mode
  • PIB combined mode—plugged on the PIB
  • PCI mode—plugged into a PC as standard PC card (cost effective) through PCI or PCI Express


  • Supports the MPC8568E, running up to 1.33 GHz at 1.1V core voltage in a 1023-pin TBGA 1 mm pitch package
  • PCI support—32-bit and 66 MHz


  • Dual RS-232 transceiver connected to DUART

QUICC Engine functions supported

  • All QUICC Engine signals are available on PMC0 and PMC1 on the PIB
  • 8x TDM port with the PQ-MDS-T1 card on the PIB (on PMC0)
  • 2x DS3 port with the PQ-MDS-T1 card on the PIB (on PMC0)
  • 2x UTOPIA/POS Level 2, 8/16-bits, multi-
  • PHY multidevice with PQ-MDS-QOC3 cards on the PIB (on PMC0 and PMC1)
  • 6x 10/100 Mbit/s RMII Ethernet ports on the PIB
  • RoHS compliant
  • FCC compliant
  • CE compliant

Platform I/O Board Features

  • AdvancedTCA form factor:
    • Operates in an AdvancedTCA chassis or standalone
    • High-speed riser connectors to enable connections to the system board
    • Four sets of PMC connectors for PCI and QUICC Engine functions
  • QUICC Engine signals are split between two sets of PMC connectors
  • Two sets of PMC connectors can run simultaneous signals to two ATM modules
  • each one of the ATM modules has ADTEC connectors
  • One PCI bus—PCI operates as 32-bit PCI (on two PMC slots)
  • One RS422 port
  • Quad 10/100 Ethernet PHYs with RMII interface (eight available, only four used for MPC8568E)
  • Two 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports with fiber optics connectors
  • I2C for BCSR read and write
  • Logic analyzer connectors for all CE signals
  • Dual 48V input power supply
  • AdvancedTCA input connector (ZONE-1)
  • Backplane connectors (ZD Zone-2) for high-speed signals
