MPC8308 PowerQUICC® II Pro Processor


Freescale's MPC8308 optimized for low cost and low-power


Freescale - MPC8308 PowerQUICC II Pro Communications ProcessorFreescale Semiconductor's MPC8308 is optimized for low cost and low power, providing a highly-integrated PowerQUICC II Pro processor that addresses requirements of networking applications, including smart grid home energy gateways, data concentrators, wireless LAN access points, wireless femto base stations, consumer printing, and industrial applications. The MPC8308 extends the PowerQUICC II Pro family, adding higher CPU performance and high-speed peripherals with low power consumption at a very aggressive cost.

For networking applications, the gigabit Ethernet MACs support connectivity to the wired network, while the PCI Express® and SDIO interfaces offer connectivity to wireless LAN or 3G and 4G modem devices. The MPC8308 features integrated IEEE® 1588 (version 2) time synchronization, offering extremely precise clock synchronization for applications such as time-sensitive telecommunications services, industrial network switches, powerline networks, and test/measurement devices.
