MPC8315E-RDB Reference Design Board



The MPC8315 reference platform ( MPC8315E-RDB) is ideal for hardware and software development of the 2-drive consumer network attached storage (NAS) and the digital media server. The MPC8315E-RDB is a system featuring the powerful PowerQUICC™ II Pro processor, which includes a built-in security accelerator. This low-cost, high-performance system solution consists of a printed circuit board (PCB) assembly known as the MPC8315E-RDB Board, plus a board support package (BSP), distributed in a CD image. This BSP enables fastest possible time-to-market for development or integration of applications including home NAS and NAS+WAN gateway.
