    The ColdFire® V2 core is based on a memory-configurable hierarchical architecture that is 100 percent synthesizable and specifically designed for reuse and ease of integration into custom designs. The core supports up to 166 MHz of performance on a 0.13 µm process using a single-issue, standard cell-based design with 32-bit address and data buses and an integrated debug module. The core uses a variable length RISC architecture that allows instructions to be 16, 32, or 48 bits in length. The result is more efficiently packed code in memory, reducing memory requirements and lowering overall system cost.


    Standard Product Platform–SPP

    To help designers decrease time to market, Freescale has packaged the 68K/ColdFire V2 core architecture into a standard product platform. The SPP is a set of tested and previously deployed subsystems and peripherals easily used to build large, complex systems.SPP Features• V2 ColdFire core—100–160 MHz
