Module Description
The Freescale MPC5554 PowerPC microcontroller embodies the continued development of the successful MPC500 family. This device expands upon the functions and features of the MPC565 by offering enhanced eTPU and eQADC, as well as more than doubling the clock frequency to 132MHz and introducing an Instruction Cache while requiring a low 1V5 core power supply. 5V, 3V3 and 1V5 core supply voltages are generated on-board. The MPC5554 offers system performance of up to five times higher than its MPC500 predecessors. It offers 2 MB on-chip Flash memory, enhanced timer systems, and a peripheral set tailored for automotive and industrial applications. Based on the PowerPC architecture and instruction set, the MPC5554 32-bit embedded controller has been designed for real-time control applications such as automotive powertrain systems.
