mpc567xr Training

ASH WARE – Embedded Software Tools since 1994

Course Title: MPC5676R (Cobra) Power Architecture

Target Applications: Automotive, commercial, industrial, and aerospace.

Course Description: This 3 day course offers coverage of e200z7 Dual Core Power Architecture, memory protection and memory controller, cross-bar switch, System Timers and all internal/external buses. Also included are details of all on-chip peripherals with software example demonstrations provided on some modules.

Who Should Attend: Software and system engineers who need to come up to speed quickly on how to program and design with the MPC567xR Devices.

Participants will be provided: A hard copy of the workshop course notes, lab book and textbook. A CDROM of all the example software projects and demo version of the development tools is also provided.

Prerequisite: Knowledge/experience of some microprocessor/microcontroller is necessary.

After completing the workshop, the participant will understand the basic concepts of the Power Architecture and all major functional blocks of the MPC567xR devices.
