This board, is based on the well known PowerPC-RISC-CPU of Freescale (Motorola), like the OAK_EMUF. Installed is a special version, with integrated Flash which includes chip select logic, timer, counter and interrupt management, CAN, TUP and many other features. An independent floating point increases high performance. Fast Burst RAMs as well as Burst Flashes are used for constant high throughput even in large applications. Documentation (hardware, sample source code, data sheets, description etc.) are available on CD.
