Freescale Semiconductor Inc. has started sampling its latest PowerQUICC III processor dubbed MPC8535E, which offers advanced energy management functions for networking, industrial and media processing applications.

The MPC8535E SoC is based on the e500 V2 core that is built on Power Architecture technology, and offers 32Kbyte of instruction and data cache and 512Kbyte of Level 2 cache. It is available in speed grades up to 1.25GHz and helps lower system costs by integrating key interfaces and peripherals, including DDR2 & DDR3 support, three PCIe controllers configurable x8, SD/MMC memory, and SATA, dual-USB, I?C, SPI and legacy PCI bus technologies.

The MPC8535E is pin- and package-compatible with the MPC8536E, providing a migration path should future designs require additional performance and peripherals.

Price starts at $60 for 10K quantities.
