RTXC Quadros for ColdFire 5282

Freescale, Quadros Systems and Metrowerks have partnered to provide a complete hardware/software solution for networked embedded control based on the new ColdFire MCF5282 microcontroller. The development-ready solution includes the RTXC Quadros real-time operating system, integrated networking software and CodeWarrior Development Tools. The solution is designed to allow for ease of use and fast development by users of all experience levels.

The new MCF5282 processor is the first 32-bit processor to include integrated Ethernet MAC and on-chip flash memory (512K). Other features include integrated CAN support with 16 message buffers, three UARTs with DMA support, QPSI with 4 chip selects,multiple timers and much more. Samples will be available in Q1 2003.

Three versions of the software suite are available at a range of prices and functionality to meet the needs of all experience levels - from first time users to experienced users.

The RTXC Quadros for MCF5282 Special Edition is Free and offers a fixed binary image that supports a limited number of tasks and network connections. This version requires no NRE, license or royalties.

The Standard Edition is a configurable binary version providing flexibility in number of tasks, network connections and memory requirements. This is suitable for advanced embedded control and networking and is available for a license fee per project of $17,500*.

Lastly, the Professional Edition is a fully configurable version with source code that supports a wide range of configuration options and code scaling. This package delivers optimal performance and design flexibility and is available for a license fee per project of $31,500*.
