Today Litronic AG is announcing the immediate availability of the SCIOPTA Real-Time Operating System for the Freescale MPC5200 processors.
The SCIOPTA MPC5200 RTOS is written in highly optimized assembler and specifically tuned for the MPC5200 Processors. This results in a very high performance and a low memory footprint.

Beside the fast Real-Time Kernel there is IPS (Internet Protocols, TCP/IP), IPS Applications (Web Server, DHCP, DNS, SMTP, Telnet, TFTP etc.), SFFS (Flash File Systems), USB support and the DRUID System Level Debugger available.

SCIOPTA MPC5200 is royalty free and supports actually the C/C++ compilers and environments from GNU GCC and Metrowerks. A precompiled version of GCC is included in the SCIOPTA CD delivery.

Freescales’ MPC5200B

Freescale’s highly integrated, cost-effective MPC5200B is well suited for networking, media, industrial control, and automotive applications. It delivers 760 MIPS with a Floating Point Unit (FPU), hardware Memory Management Unit (MMU) for fast task switching, is packed with I/O, and operates at only one watt. The MPC5200B serves the processing-intensive network media gateway, network access storage, set-top box, audio jukebox automotive, Internet access, industrial automation, image detection/analysis, and electronic/medical instrumentation markets.

With its successful foundation in the automotive/telematics market via the mobileGTā„¢ alliance and platforms, all markets can now enjoy extended temperature, automotive qualification, and life cycles typically demanded in that industry. A solid choice of Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS) and development boards with Board Support Packages (BSPs) provides users with a complete and flexible set of solutions.

MPC5200B Products Highlights

The MPC5200B is based on a 400 MHz MPC603e PowerPC core with an integrated double precision Floating Point Unit (FPU) that is qualified at -40oC to +85oC. It incorporates a hardware-based memory management unit (MMU) for advanced memory protection schemes, fast task switching and broad RTOS support. The MPC5200B was designed for fast data throughput and processing. The integrated BestComm DMA controller offloads the main MPC603e core from I/O intensive data transfers. An integrated Double Data Rate (DDR) memory controller accelerates data access with an effective memory bus speed of 266 MHz. A high-speed PCI interface backed by the BestComm DMA controller and DDR memory support enables high-speed data transfers in and out of the MPC5200B. The MPC5200B is manufactured in 0.13 micron technology. Lead (Pb)-free RoHS compliant and Pb packages are available.
