The MPC8306, 06S and MPC8309 processors are part of the cost-effective MPC830x communications processor family based on the e300 core, built on Power Architecture technology. The devices integrate QUICC Engine technology capable of supporting HDLC, TDM and 10/100 R/MII. The MPC8306 also supports IEEE 1588 v2 time stamping. The MPC8306/S devices provide users with a highly integrated, fully programmable communications processor for use in many networking, industrial control and low-end embedded applications. This helps ensure that a cost-effective system solution can be quickly developed and will offer flexibility to accommodate new standards and evolving system requirements.The MPC8309 PowerQUICC II Pro offers a cost-effective network communication processors that meet the requirements of multi-protocol control applications. It provides better CPU performance, additional functionality and faster interfaces than current PowerQUICC II processors while addressing important time to market, price, power consumption and board real estate requirements.
