Processor Evaluation Board Embraces Network Connectivity

Targeting users who need to develop embedded processing applications that require network connectivity, the ColdFire evaluation board provides all the necessary hardware and firmware needed to implement a networked interface using the Motorola MCF5282 processor. These include all physical layer (PHY) devices, memory, and the capability for external expansion for any bridging application that requires 10/100 Ethernet, UARTs, CAN interface, QSPI, analog inputs, and/or memory-mapped peripherals. Features include the MCF5282 ColdFire processor, a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet interface, two RS-232 ports, a queued serial peripheral interface (QSPI) port, CAN interface, 16 MB of SDRAM (not populated), 8 MB FLASH (not populated), expansion AvBus connector, an 8-channel, 10-bit queued a/d converter, and a BDM/JTAG connector. The AvBus expansion connector allows for user defined add-on hardware, or can be utilized with over 20 compatible evaluation and development boards from Avnet Design Services. These boards can be mixed and matched to provide a variety of additional hardware and firmware capability from PCI and PCI-X connectivity, RapidIO, memory and communications and video/audio functions.Target applications for the Motorola MCF5282 Evaluation Kit include industrial control, serial protocol bridges, and embedded Internet appliances.
