XPedite5330: 3U cPCI Board with MPC8572E PowerQUICC™ III

Electronic Tools is pleased to introduce XPedite5330, a new 3U CompactPCI single-board computer based on Freescale Semiconductor’s MPC8572E PowerQUICC® III processor.

In addition to the MPC 8572E dual-core processor, XPedite5330 provides a PMC/XMC site along with Gigabit Ethernet and the traditional PCI bus. To provide a system designer with multiple hardware options, XPedite5330 is available in a full range of convection- or conduction-cooled configurations.


  • Freescale MPC8572E PowerQUICC™ III processor with dual e500 Power Architecture® cores at up to 1.5 GHz
  • Two separate DDR2-800 ECC SDRAM channels with up to 2 GB per channel
  • Up to 4 GB of NAND flash and 256 MB of redundant NOR flash
  • 32-bit/33-MHz PCI
  • Two Gigabit Ethernet ports

Software Support:

  • Wind River VxWorks Board Support Package (BSP)
  • QNX Neutrino BSP
  • Green Hills INTEGRITY BSP
  • Linux LSP

Expert Comments:
“XPedite5330 is a continuation of Extreme Engineering’s (X-ES) dedication to a modular product assembly line, allowing Extreme to move from one form factor to another with virtually identical hardware and software. Freescale’s advanced MPC8572E dual-core processor is a natural fit to expand our 3U CompactPCI product offerings to our customers in a low-power/high-performance form factor,” states Aaron Lindner, Engineering Manager for X-ES.

“Extreme Engineering’s third MPC8572E product development in as many months underscores the company’s expertise in deploying Freescale silicon into compelling designs,” states Glenn Beck, a marketing manager within Freescale’s Networking Systems Division. “Offering customers multiple hardware configurations plus direct RTOS support helps our joint customers get to market fast.”
