The ColdFire V1 Platform is a fully configurable microcontroller subsystem built from the same ColdFire V1 32-bit processor IP that is implemented in ColdFire+ family devices from Freescale Semiconductor.
ColdFire+ family devices feature an enhanced version of the ColdFire V1 Core. The ColdFire V1 processor implemented in the ColdFire V1 Platform features:
An enhanced MAC (EMAC) unit
An improved hardware divider (DIV+)
Cryptographic Acceleration Unit (CAU)
Each of the above units is optional. The ColdFire V1 debug unit with single-wire debug interface and 64-entry trace buffer is also optional. By adjusting HDL parameter settings, you can explore various design tradeoffs and include only the hardware you need for your final implementation, resulting in the smallest and most power efficient core possible for your application requirements.
Similar to other ColdFire architecture processors, the ColdFire V1 processor used in the ColdFire V1 Platform features a variable-length instruction set for maximum code density, industry-standard AMBA 3 AHB-Lite system bus interface for rapid system integration, and a wide selection of development tools, operating systems, drivers, and libraries from both commercial and open source providers.
