NXP  MPC8308-RDB  Reference Design, PCI Express interconnect, Two I2C, Dual UART, USB 2.0, Ethernet

Product Overview

The MPC8308-RDB reference platform is ideal for hardware and software development in embedded applications. It leverages the cost effective MPC8308 PowerQUICC II Pro communications processor, built on power architecture technology, which is designed to meet the requirements of several low end embedded networking applications with high-speed peripherals while striving for low power consumption and a small-footprint package design. The MPC8308-RDB integrates leading-edge external components. The MPC8308 microprocessor supports dual 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet controllers, single lane PCI express, USB 2.0 controller, enhanced SDHC controller for SD memory interface, dual universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (DUART), serial peripherals, general purpose I/O and system timers. The MPC8308-RDB incorporates a pre-installed board support package (BSP) containing a boot loader (u-boot) a generic power architecture technology system based on the Linux kernel.
  • MPC8308 PowerQUICC II Pro processor up to 333/266MHz (CPU/DDR2)
  • 4-port gigabit Ethernet switch, supporting RGMII/MII
  • Mini PCI express for WLAN
  • UART connectors for debug connectivity
  • Single USB 2.0 supporting host, device or OTG
  • 32bit DDR2 with population option for 16bit
  • Single port SD/MMC connector
  • IEEE 1588v2 support for timing synchronization
