MCF5329 Fire Engine

Based on the Freescale MCF5329 32-bit ColdFire RISC microprocessor running at 240 MHz.


IMPORTANT: Some models of this product have entered End of Life (EOL) status; please refer to the EOL Notification for last time buy and ship details.

The MCF5329 Fire Engine is a compact, product-ready hardware and software solution that fast forwards your embedded product design.

The MCF5329 Fire Engine is a complete System on Module (SOM) that offers essential features for handheld and embedded networking applications. Use of custom baseboards makes the Fire Engine the ideal foundation for OEMs developing handheld and compact products. The Fire Engine provides a common reference pin-out on its expansion connectors, which enables easy scalability to next generation microprocessor Fire Engines when new functionality or performance is required.

Application development is performed right on the product-ready MCF5329 Fire Engine and software Board Support Packages (BSPs), which enables you to seamlessly transfer your application code and hardware into production.

The MCF5329 Fire Engine is ideal for applications in the medical, point-of-sale, industrial, and security markets. From patient monitoring and medical imaging, to card payment terminals and bar code readers, to CCTV cameras and intruder alarms, the MCF5329 Fire Engine allows for powerful versatility and long-life products.
