Microcontroller Module ec555 with MPC555 Chip
The module ec555 made by Würz elektronik is a credit-card sized module with
the Freescale (Motorola) processor MPC555. The MPC555 is a RISC MCU with a 32 bit PowerPC architecture and
integrated floating point unit.
The processor of the MPC555 operates at 40 MHz.
The design intention of the module, sized 97x57 mm, was a stand-alone
solution for embedded applications. The module can have up to 16 MB external flash-EPROM
bit), up to 8 MB synchronous burst SRAM , two RS232 drivers and two CAN interfaces.
interfaces are optically insolated and have their own DC/DC converters. The module is
CAN-Ready for transfer rates up to 1 Mbps. A 10 pin debug interface (BDM) can be used to program
the internal and the external flash-EPROM via debug software.
All processor signals are
accessible on three connectors. Pins (spacing 2,54 mm) serve for the connection of add-on modules. The
module is also available for an extended temperature range as an option. Single 5 Volt Power Supply.
An Evaluationboard with a 10 base ETHERNET-interface for the development of
applications is available.
Due to its ruggedness the module can also be used in extreme environments.
Conformal coating is optionally possible.
