The MPC8360E Reference Design Kit highlights the capabilities of the MPC83xx PowerQUICC processors for applications that require high-performance connectivity and determinism. The platform supports graphics and touchscreen capability in addition to popular interfaces such as Ethernet, 64-bit PCI controllers, UARTS, integrated security engine, USB, SPI, I2C, and (GPIO) pins. The platform ships with a Linux® board support package, bootloader, production-ready protocols for evaluation, and is supported by Freescale CodeWarrior tools, Wind River Linux and VxWorks® and Green Hills INTEGRITY®/velOSity™. The protocols include: EtherNet/IP™ and DeviceNet™ which is licensable from Real Time Automation, ETHERNET Powerlink and IEEE® 1588 which are licensable from IXXAT. Additional protocols are under development for this platform. This platform utilizes the industry-standard COM Express module for the MPC8360 MPU which allows for future MPC83xx modules to be offered for this development environment.
