GDA Technologies Announces Availability of Advanced Mezzanine Reference Platform for Freescale's High-Performance MPC8548E Power

ORLANDO, Fla., July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Freescale Technology Forum (FTF Americas) -- GDA Technologies, Inc., a fast-growing IP and Electronic Design Services (EDS) company, today announced the market-leading availability of its Reference Platform kit for Freescale Semiconductor's Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) based on the MPC8548E PowerQUICC(TM) III processor built on Power Architecture(TM) technology.

The MPC8548E-based AMC is designed with high-performance Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and up to 8 lanes of PCI Express for embedded applications in broadband telecommunications and data communications networks. The board has four Gigabit Ethernet ports (two on the front panel and two on the edge connector) along with a debug port on the front panel and 8 PCI Express lanes on the AMC edge connector. The highly integrated MPC8548E processor architecture implemented on the AMC form-factor improves system performance, simplifies board design, lowers power consumption, and reduces system implementation cost. The 1.3GHz processor redefines the standard for high- performance AMC cards for AdvancedTCA(R) Carriers.

The platform comes with packaged embedded software on Flash based on embedded Linux(R) OS with device drivers. GDA is working with leading software application stack providers to provide targeted software solutions to enable this platform into shippable end products at a rapid pace.

"GDA is one of the first companies to offer the leading-edge MPC8548E on a high-performance industry-standard platform running seamlessly in target mode and supported with Linux source code. This product is aimed at helping our customers accelerate their own innovations and get to market much faster and with significantly reduced risk. The MPC8548E-based AMC is the latest addition to GDA's portfolio of Freescale PowerQUICC III processor-based reference platforms, which have already become segment bestsellers," said Gopa Periyadan, VP & GM of the System and Software unit at GDA Technologies. "The GDA 8548E AMC board is already available for sale from Arrow Electronics."

"Backed by Linux OS and development support from GDA, the MPC8548E Reference Platform provides a powerful, cost-effective solution for a broad range of applications, such as wireless base stations, media gateways, enterprise network access systems, test and measurement systems, and server blades implemented on the AdvancedTCA platform," said Jeff Timbs, marketing director for Freescale's Digital Systems Division.

"With the MPC8548E-based AMC, embedded developers and system integrators who desire the powerful capabilities of PowerQUICC III processors may quickly migrate to higher performance levels while leveraging proven development platforms to reduce the time and cost of getting to market."
