With the EP8343M you can have it your way. The EP8343M is a PrPMC/PT0MC board designed for ease of integration into standards based CompactPCI systems. For simple software development, the EP8343M can be used in a stand alone mode with a wall cube power supply when a full CompactPCI system is unnecessary or inconvenient. You have a choice of operating systems and custom hardware diagnostics letting you focus on your application development and getting to market first.
The EP8343M features a Freescale MPC8343E PowerQUICC II Pro processor that offers a cost-effective, high-performance platform for developing advanced network enabled applications. The MPC8343E builds on the PowerQUICC II system-on-chip (SoC) architecture including an e300 PowerPC core, an integrated security engine, a DDR memory interface, dual Gigabit Ethernet controllers, PCI and USB controllers. The highly integrated SoC architecture improves system performance, simplifies board design, lowers power consumption, and reduces cost.
Embedded Planet can custom configure several hardware options with low minimum build requirements ensuring that you can meet your desired price point. The EP8343M can have a maximum of 256MB of DDR RAM with ECC, 256MB of flash, and 1MB of NVRAM. It includes 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 1 USB 2.0 Host/Device/On-The-Go port, and one RS-232 serial port. For a removable storage option the board supports up to 1GB of TransFlash memory, a microSD format which is about 25% the size of an SD memory card.
The EP8343M is well supported by Embedded Planet's extensive software capabilities. Each board includes the open source U-Boot bootloader and flash programmer, PlanetCore hardware diagnostics, Linux, Green Hills INTEGRITY, VxWorks and Deos by DDC-I board support packages. The complete system ensures that you can quickly move past basic board support and begin deploying your application.
