Other features of both devices include a memory controller, interrupt controller, DMA controller, I2C interface, and 16550-compatible DUARTs. The MPC8241 166MHz and 200 MHz versions are priced at $19.89 and $22.95, respectively, each/10,000 and the MPC8245 333MHz and 350 MHz processors are priced at $45.60 and $48.93, respectively, each/10,000.
