e2v has announced extended-reliability versions of Freescale's PC837x PowerQUICC II Pro communications processor. According to the company, the PC8378 and PC8379 are geared for networking applications in aerospace, defence and demanding outdoor environments.

The PowerQUICC II Pro PC8378 and PC8379 processors claim to deliver industry leading performance in the sub 5W power category. They are built on a Power Architecture e300c4s processor core-operating at frequencies of up to 800MHz-with PCI Express and serial-ATA (SATA) controllers, as well as dual Gigabit Ethernet controllers. These processors are built on Freescale's 90nm technology to deliver reliability and high-performance, in a very low power envelope, added the firms.

These sub 5W communications processors target aerospace and defence communications systems and are also fully software compatible with PC603e, allowing for easy system upgrades without compromising reliability and at minimal software qualification cost, e2v indicated.

The communications processors are manufactured on Freescale's 90nm CMOS on SOI process technology and are available in an extended temperature range (-40C to 125C) and in a FC-PBGA 689 pin package.
