The phyCORE-MPC5554 SOM integrates the 32-bit NXP MPC5554 PowerPC® microcontroller on an advanced PCB. A solution for balance between cost-efficiency and complex calculation intensive processing, the phyCORE-MPC5554 features Lattice XP FPGA logic elements. Interfaces including Ethernet, I2C, SPI, FlexCAN, SCI UARTs, and other multi-purpose I/O signals can be accessed with ease by the two 220-pin high-density Molex connectors.
