NXP MPC8610

Course Family:
NXP Integrated Host Processors
SKU/Ref:
NXP_MPC8610

Course Objectives

This course aims to explain the architecture of the NXP MPC8610 SoC to enable participants to efficiently design a board and develop or adapt boot and I/O drivers. Attendees will get a detailed understanding of the internal architecture, especially the various paths between CPU, memory and peripherals. They will study the complex I/O peripherals including the communication controllers.

General Information

Prerequisites

  • Experience with a 32-bit processor or DSP is mandatory
  • The e600 CPU is covered by a separate course entitled NXP_E600

Duration & Attendance

  • 3 days
  • Min/max number of participants: 3-15

Location

On site/intra

Target Audience

Engineers and technicians who develop boards and software based on MPC8610.
