The PPMC8245/8240 reference design is a single board computer that enables development to begin before the hardware is available. This board provides a live target to start evaluating, developing, testing and prototyping application code.Wind River4s PPMC8245/8240 comes standard with 64MB ofSDRAM, 8MB of flash, and access to all of the processor'scommunications channels via industry standard headers andconnectors. It also comes with Intel. 82559 10/100Mh/Sintegrated Ethernet MAC/PHY, a mailbox connector, and a serialinterface which is either a dual RS-232 interface which uses the 8245 DUART, or a single external UART when the CPU is an 8240. Like all Wind River reference designs, the PPMC8245/8240 comes complete with detailed schematics, board support package, visionBOOT boot loader, user documentation, and power supply.
