esd electronics announced their EPPC-T10, an embedded CPU board with 3 independent Ethernet interfaces. The NXP PowerPC QorIQ T1014 with 1.2 GHz features one 64-bit e5500 Power Architecture® processor cores with highperformance data path acceleration architecture (DPAA) and network peripheral interfaces.
The local memory bus is 64 bits wide plus 8 bits ECC with an overall capacity of 512 Mbyte. 16 Mbyte SPI Flash for boot loader and 32 Kbit I²C EEPROM for U-Boot environment offer non-volatile memory spaces.
The EPPC-T10 features a second 16 Mbyte ‘fallback’ SPI Flash, used for system recovery if a system crash occurs during a firmware update. Alternatively it can be used for application software.
