Building upon the 68K foundation, ColdFire offers RISC performance with industry-leading code density and a rich set of connectivity peripherals. By supporting variable-length instructions (16-, 32- or 48-bits long), the ColdFire Architecture enables higher code density than traditional 32- and 64-bit RISC machines. More efficient use of on-chip memory reduces bus bandwidth and external memory requirements, resulting in lower system cost.
The ColdFire Architecture is ubiquitous in consumer and industrial applications, which means a massive base of existing application code. ColdFire controllers continue to set the pace for the embedded market—from industrial automation systems to inkjet printers and media players.
The V2 ColdFire SPP takes you a step further toward building a complete SoC by integrating popular peripherals from Freescale’s Standard Product Platform with the V2 ColdFire Core, providing a full ColdFire-based subsystem. The peripheral set in the V2 ColdFire SPP is identical to that proven in Freescale’s MCF5208 devices.
