mpc563xm Training

ASH WARE – Embedded Software Tools since 1994

Course Title: MPC563xM (Monaco)

Course Description: The MPC563xM course is a three day presentation based on the MPC5632/3/4M devices. The course covers system resources and individual blocks of the microcontroller.  Topics cover detailed operation, of the PowerPC core, Memory Management unit including memory partitions and system protection, internal and external buses including cross bar switch, Interrupt signaling and handling, integrated peripheral description and operation, system timers and the new enhanced eTPU2 timer and enhanced eQADC. Serial communication modules such as LIN, FlexCAN and DSPI are covered.

Application examples and comparisons to the MPC5500 family are covered. Some hands-on will be provided.

Participants will be provided: A course notebooks, lab book and Text books are provided.
