An Electronic Design article reviews the Freescale M5282LITE development board which is based on the Freescale Coldfire. The article notes the similarities of the Coldfire to the older Motorola 68000 series of chips which are still popular with robots builders in boards like the Mini RoboMind. The $179 M5282LITE includes the Freescale MCF5282 CPU running at 66MHz with 16MB of DRAM and 2MB of Flash. It includes a 10/100 Ethernet port, DB-9 serial port, BDM/JTAG, 8 channel 10 bit queued A/D, SPI, I2C, CAN, 3 SCI UARTS, and two 4 channel GPT timers. The board can run uClinux and uses the GCC tool chain. See the spec sheet (PDF format) for more details. For a similar board, see the Intec WildFire that we reported on last month.
