This handler uses hardware register banks for zero cycle context switching so that the key servo routines are executed efficiently.
It also automatically generates software macros that depict hardware register addresses, size and bit position, eliminating errors that can occur in a manual approach.
The software package includes a service-aware API that simplifies code development, thus, allowing engineers to focus on embedded application development instead of hardware register configuration.
Embedded C provides a single uniform syntax for basic I/O hardware register addressing, which will improve consistency and portability of low-level I/O access across compilers.
Additional features include 60 special function hardware registers, eight level deep hardware stack, interrupt capability, 52 I/O pins, pulse-width modulation output and Synchronous Serial Port supporting SPI(TM) and I2C(TM) buses and brown-out detection circuitry for brown-out reset (BOR).
The CompactPCI 9656RDK-860 software and hardware registers are backward-compatible with PLX CompactPCI 9054RDK-860, allowing designers to migrate their existing 32-bit, 33MHz PCI bus PowerQUICC designs into 64-bit, 66MHz PCI solutions.
