    The NXP's MPC8309-KIT evaluation kit (MPC8309-KIT) is a cost-optimized reference design board for NXP’s MPC8309-KIT PowerQUICC II Pro processors, built on Power Architecture® technology. The kit consists of a carrier card and a system on module (SOM) representing each of the two processors.

    The NXP's MPC8309-KIT can be customized per project and combined with off-the-shelf software for product development. The module components provide the tools, device drivers and additional features needed for embedded Linux® OS projects. The MPC8309-KIT incorporates the e300c3 (MPC603e-based) core built on Power Architecture® technology, which includes 16 Kbytes of each L1 instruction and data caches, dual integer units, and on-chip memory management units (MMUs). The MPC8309 also includes a 32-bit PCI controller, two DMA engines and a 16/32-bit DDR2 memory controller with 8-bit ECC.

    A new communications complex based on QUICC Engine technology forms the heart of the networking capability of the MPC8309-KIT. The QUICC Engine block contains several peripheral controllers and a 32-bit RISC controller. Protocol support is provided by the main workhorses of the device - the unified communication controllers (UCCs). Each of the five UCCs can support a variety of communication protocols such as 10/100 Mbps MII/RMII Ethernet, HDLC and TDM.

    In summary, the MPC8309-KIT provides users with a highly integrated, fully programmable communications processor. This helps to ensure that a low-cost system solution can be quickly developed and offers flexibility to accommodate new standards and evolving system requirements.

    Key Applications: Network communication, Low-end printers, Factory or building automation, IEEE® 1588 in test and measurement equipment and industrial automation, Programmable logic controller, Managed industrial router
