Applied Micro Circuits Corp. has announced the newest member of its Power Architecture family, the PowerPC 440EPr processor.

The PowerPC 440EPr is aimed at cost-sensitive applications, such as secure gateway solutions, network appliances, multifunction printing platforms, networking line cards and other embedded systems.

The PowerPC 440EPr features up to 500MHz of processing speed, dual GbE ports, 32bit PCI, USB2.0, support for 32bit DDR2 high-performance memory and an integrated Turbo Security Engine, while offering typical power dissipation of 3.5W. The PowerPC 440EPr is offered for cost-sensitive customers who still require the 1,000 DMIPS performance and features of the superscalar 440 processor core.

In addition, the PowerPC 440EPr includes a high-performance double precision floating point unit compatible with the IEEE 754 floating point standards. The Turbo Security Engine in the PowerPC 440EPr supports a broad range of standards-based security protocols, such as IPSec, SRTP and SSL. The 440EPr USB2.0 port can operate in either Host or Device mode and features an integrated PHY to reduce further system design costs and complexity.

The PowerPC 440EPr will begin sampling Q2 this year.
