The Sandpoint evaluation system demonstrates the capabilities of Freescale Power Architecture processors and the Tundra Tsi107™ Power Architecture Host Bridge. The Sandpoint Evaluation System is the ideal platform for software development and debug, as well as for hardware development.
The Sandpoint evaluation system provides an example that can be used in designing other systems based on implementations of the Power Architecture instruction set architecture, and a platform for developing and debugging software for these processors and associated bridge chips.
The motherboard inside the Sandpoint evaluation system is an ATX form factor with PCI Mezzanine (PMC) connectors that accepts a processor module. The processor module options are listed below. Links to the processor module web pages can be found under Evaluation/Development Boards and Systems on this page.
