The EP8572A is a single width, full height AMC processor board featuring the high performance Freescale MPC8572 dual-core PowerPC processor operating at up to 1.5GHz. In addition to the AMC configuration the EP8572A can operate as a stand-alone module and boot from on board flash allowing for rapid application development outside of the integrated ATCA or MicroTCA environment. With broad operating support, the EP8572A is built for a broad range of demanding applications in wireless basestations, media gateways, enterprise network access systems, test and measurement systems, and server blades.
For fabric connectivity the EP8572A offers extreme flexibility, while maintaining standards compliance. All versions of the board support gigabit Ethernet on AMC channels 0 an 1, compliant with AMC.2, Type E2. Separate versions of the board are available in one of the following configurations: Serial RapidIO on AMC channels 4-7, PCI Express on AMC channels 4-11, or SCOPE-Compliant PCI Express on channels 4-7 and Serial RapidIO on channels 8-11.
At the heart of the EP8572A is a Freescale MPC8572 dual-core PowerPC processor. The MPC8572 is a highly integrated system-on-chip (SoC) platform that includes dual e500 PowerPC cores, an integrated security engine, integrated PCI Express, Serial RapidIO, and Gigabit Ethernet controllers, integrated DDR2/3 memory interface, and a pattern matching engine for packet inspection. The highly integrated SoC architecture improves system performance, simplifies board design, lowers power consumption, and reduces cost.
