PowerPC Single Board Computers

October 31, 2009

The Freescale (spun out from Motorola) PowerPC (now called Power Architecture™) family of processors is often used for Single Board Computers employed in communication applications.

While not fast enough to support in-band data at maximum rates, these processors provide many powerful communications engines implemented as internal peripherals.   Freescale has continually releases new versions of this architecture to support the latest protocols and applications. Examples of the Family include:

  • PowerPC 8XX
  • PowerPC  82XX
  • Power 83XX
  • PowerPC 85XX
  • PowerPC 55XX
