Freescale Semiconductor MPC837XE Block Diagram

The storage family's MPC837xE product line targets SMB markets, supports RAID 5, and is designed for Network Attached Storage (NAS) applications. It meets market requirements for other SMB technologies such as access points, gateways and printing/imaging equipment. The storage family's MPC8314E and MPC8315E products target consumer and SOHO markets. They support RAID 0-1, and enable the creation of digital media server and consumer NAS devices, as well as consumer and SOHO products such as residential gateways, 802.11n access points, and industrial control products. Freescale's storage family include SATA, PCI Express, USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, XOR acceleration, and high-performance security functionality.

Freescale addresses SMB market requirements with the MPC837xE product line, consisting of the MPC8379E, MPC8378E and MPC8377E processors. The MPC8379E integrates four SATA controllers and PHYs that reduce bill-of-material (BOM) costs for four-drive NAS devices. The MPC8378E supports PCI Express and SGMII for wireless access points, and the MPC8377E enables next generation multi-functional printers with the integration of two SATA controllers and two PCI Express controllers for direct hard disk drive and I/O connectivity.

Freescale's PowerQUICC processors, built on Power Architecture technology, are supported by an ecosystem of third party hardware and software partners offering development tools and systems, as well as middleware and software stacks.
