Built on Power Architecture technology, Freescale’s multicore Qorivva 32-bit MPC5676R microcontroller unit (MCU) is aimed at powertrain applications for improving engine efficiency and reducing exhaust emissions. According to the company, the device provides four times the performance, double the memory space, and more functionality than the previous-generation, single-core MPC5566 MCU. With the combined benefits of the MPC5676R, automakers can incorporate technology, such as direct injection, turbocharging, and full drive-by-wire systems into a single controller. The 90-nanometer, dual-core MPC5676R MCU is equipped with 6 MB of on-chip flash memory, 384 KB of on-chip RAM, and three high-performance enhanced timing processor units.
