Latest Addition To Comm Processor Family Has Connectivity Core

Representing an extension of the PowerQUICC II family of integrated communications processors, the MPC8250 integrates an embedded G2 core with Ethernet and PCI connectivity. In addition to the G3 core and RISC-based communications processor module, the device includes three 10/100 Ethernet MACs and support for up to 128 HDLC channels. Reducing the need for external components, it also provides a 32-bit, 66 MHz PCI interface. Targeted applications include SOHO routing designs that use multiple WAN interfaces and Fast Ethernet connections. Initially, the processor will be available at a CPU frequency of 200 MHz and a CPM frequency of 133 MHz. Alpha sampling now with production expected in the second quarter, price is $65 each/10,000.
