The V4 ColdFire Processor Core is a high-performance implementation of the ubiquitous ColdFire architecture from Freescale Semiconductor, offering over 500 DMIPS of performance. Fully code compatible with V1 and V2 ColdFire devices, the V4 ColdFire architecture offers high-end features such as cache and Memory Management Unit (MMU), plus advanced arithmetic units including hardware divider (DIV), enhanced MAC (EMAC), and an optional Floating Point Unit (FPU).
The V4 ColdFire Core is the same IP implemented in Freescale’s MCF5441x microcontrollers. By either including or excluding the FPU, you can configure the V4 ColdFire Core to match either the V4e or V4m processor configuration used in Freescale MCF54xx devices. And, like the V1 and V2 ColdFire cores, the V4 ColdFire Core benefits from the extensive ecosystem of development systems, tools, and software supporting the ColdFire architecture.
