Freescale Semiconductor’s
ColdFire® Family of Microprocessors
Is All About Innovation
Freescale Semiconductor brings revolutionary
ideas to the world through products that make life
easier, more productive and now, even more
connected. The ColdFire microprocessor family
contributes to this movement, playing a key role in
Freescale’s 32-bit family for the past eight years.
Manufacturers of embedded products—ranging
from industrial automation systems to inkjet
printers and MP3 players—have trusted ColdFire
embedded controllers to help get their products
to market quickly and cost-effectively. Aggressive
price/performance points, integrated standard
products and comprehensive development tools
provide system designers with the means and the
freedom to create distinctive solutions that meet
their customers’ needs.
The small, highly integrated ColdFire
microprocessors are 100 percent synthesizable
so they are easily adaptable to new process
technologies and easily integrated with memories,
system modules and communications peripherals.
The variable-length RISC architecture gives
designers greater flexibility and exceptional code
density. Efficient use of on-chip memory means
designers don’t have to sacrifice performance
to keep system costs in line.

ColdFire® Embedded Controllers
Fact Sheet
MCF520x Family
Overview
The marketplace for lower-end connectivity and
control applications is at a crossroads. The
demand for improved performance is pushing
developers to the 32-bit microprocessor, while
the stringent low power and low cost restrictions
remain paramount in the development process.
Freescale Semiconductor gives the product
designer the opportunity to drive straight-ahead
with the next-generation of MCF520x ColdFire®
embedded controllers. The MCF5207 and
MCF5208 embedded controllers combine
exceptional performance and integration with
low-power characteristics and system cost
efficiencies. Built with the Version 2 ColdFire core,
these two embedded controllers deliver 159 MIPS
(Dhrystone 2.1) at 166 MHz and include the
enhanced multiply-accumulate (eMAC) unit,
resulting in DSP-like functionality. Furthermore,
these devices are optimized for low-power
applications with several low-power modes
and a low-frequency clock divider.
Big Punch, Small Cost
Adding advanced capabilities to the breadth of
ColdFire devices, the MCF5207 and MCF5208
embedded controllers start at a suggested resale
of US$4.99 in 10,000 piece quantities. Answering
the call for low system cost, the new devices
each feature a flexible memory controller, allowing
the options of attaching a combination of
external SRAM, Flash memory and a choice of
single-data rate (SDR), double-data rate (DDR)
or mobile-double-data rate (M-DDR) SDRAM
memory. The MCF5207 and MCF5208 embedded
controllers integrate the standard ColdFire
communications peripherals, including three
universal asynchronous receiver/transmitters
(UARTs) for medium and long distance
connections, an inter-integrated circuit (I2C) and
queued serial peripheral interface (QSPI) for
in-system communication to connected peripherals.
In addition, the MCF5208 embedded controller
features a 10/100 Fast Ethernet Controller.
Delivering ColdFire
to Volume-Driven Markets
The MCF520x family of ColdFire
embedded controllers extends the long
and distinguished line of 68K and
ColdFire-based processors that dates
back to the introduction of the MC68000
in 1979. With the introduction of the
MCF5207 and MCF5208 embedded
controllers, Freescale enables a new
customer community to design volume
applications affordably and attractively
with 32-bit performance and integration.
Moreover, the seamless ColdFire roadmap
to the high end means customers can
continue to rely on the Freescale ColdFire
Family across their entire product offerings.
Freescale’s dedication to the ColdFire
family of processors for control applications
means customers can feel secure that
they are designing in quality with a long
product lifetime.

Fact Sheet
MCF521x Family
Overview
Pressing its leadership in 32-bit processing
into new territory, Freescale Semiconductor
introduces a single-chip solution to address
the need for a cost-sensitive, low-power,
32-bit microcontroller that fills the gap
between existing 16-bit and 32-bit products.
Applications requiring traditional general
purpose microcontroller functionality have
rising computational performance and memory
requirements. The challenge is to provide a
microcontroller that offers it all—low-power
operation in small footprint configurations with
options for computational-intensive tasks.
There is also a requirement for a roadmap
with seamless migration that includes
robust full-featured embedded controllers.
Freescale’s MCF521x embedded controller
family encompasses all this and more.
It features power management options and
low-power modes along with right-sized
feature sets offering a host of peripherals
commonly used in microcontroller applications.
Trends
As a competitive advantage in the embedded
marketplace becomes harder to secure,
protecting a company’s intellectual property (IP)
becomes more critical. The robust and secure
flash technology offered by the MCF521x family
of embedded controllers gives designers a
tool for protecting intellectual property. For
applications requiring code security, the
MCF521x family of embedded controllers offers
a single-chip solution with up to 256 KB of high
performance, near-single access, interleaved
and securable embedded Flash memory.
Moreover, the MCF521x embedded controller
communication peripherals provide easy
connection to other systems. Three universal
asynchronous receiver/transmitters (UARTs)
enable medium to long-distance communication
to other control systems or computers.
An inter-integrated circuit (I2C) and
queued serial peripheral interface (QSPI)
enable in-system communication to
connected peripherals and systems,
including LCDs and keyboards. All this
is offered along with the high performance
V2 ColdFire core that even incorporates a
multiply and accumulate module (MAC)
for DSP-like operation.
Building on years of experience in
industrial control and communications,
the MCF521x embedded controller family
adds to a portfolio that today includes
32-bit embedded controllers with Flash
memory and on-chip Ethernet and CAN
networking interfaces as well as 16-bit
microcontrollers that offer optimized
system solutions with Ethernet and
Physical interfaces for complete
networking solutions. The MCF521x
family of embedded controllers offers
designers a powerful, cost-effective
solution with a variety of supporting
software and development tools that ease
the transition into 32-bit technology.
Tools and Support
The ColdFire embedded controller family
benefits from extensive support by
world-class development tools suites
offered through leading third-party tools
developers. The MCF5213EVB
development system includes, at no extra
cost, CodeWarrior Special Edition
software in each kit and professional tools
and systems from such partners as Green
Hills, Wind River Systems, Accelerated
Technology, ARC and others. The open
source software and graphical initialization
tools used in the MCF5213EVB system
make no-cost development easy
to get and easy to use.

ColdFire® Embedded Controllers
Fact Sheet
MCF532x Family
The Market Challenge
As connectivity and integration trends
progress forward, the importance of efficient
human and machine interaction is steadily
growing. The challenge for system designers
is not only to develop systems that make a
seamless transition from human command to
machine implementation, but also to develop
systems that share information in a connected
environment. What’s needed is a
microprocessor that offers a rich set of human
machine interface and connectivity peripherals
in addition to a competitive level of
performance. What’s more, developers want
access to a comprehensive roadmap of
solutions that provides a seamless migration
to an entire portfolio of full-featured
embedded processors.
Freescale’s MCF532x embedded processor
family provides all of this and more. By
introducing the first integrated liquid crystal
display (LCD) controller to the 68K/ColdFire
family of embedded controllers, the MCF532x
devices offer single chip solutions that
address the growing demand for human
interface on machine and industrial control
applications while still maintaining a rich level
of connectivity and security integration.
Control Efficiency
The MCF532x family with integrated LCD
controller takes industrial control efficiency to
the next level. Building on the competitive
high-performance legacy of the 68K/ColdFire
Family, these devices offer up to 211
(Dhrystone 2.1) MIPS at 240 MHz, placing them
among the highest performing microprocessors
in their class. The integrated super video
graphics adapter (SVGA) LCD controller
reduces overall system cost, supporting a
variety of LCD panels that are driven from one
single embedded controller chip. Other
advanced features include an enhanced
multiply-accumulate (eMAC) unit, which handles
DSP-like instructions, and an integrated
SDRAM controller that supports either double
data rate (DDR) or single data rate (SDR)
memory. All of these features make the
MCF532x devices ideal for those wishing to
upgrade their current designs to have more
performance and to accommodate the growing
industry trend for human machine interfaces.
Connectivity
The connectivity peripheral set included on the
MCF532x enables higher performance and
increased flexibility for human interface end
applications requiring any combination of
system-to-system, in-system or networked
communication. To address the increasing need
for system-to-system communications, the
MCF532x offers both an integrated universal
serial bus (USB) host and an integrated USB
On-The-Go (OTG) module. The MCF532x
embedded controllers also include three
on-chip universal asynchronous receiver/
transmitters (UARTs) for direct communication
between computers, terminals and other
devices. To accommodate the need for in-system
communication, the MCF532x also offers an
integrated queued serial peripheral interface
(QSPI) and an inter-integrated circuit (I2C).
The MCF532x family of ColdFire® devices is
also well-suited for supporting networked
communication via the integrated Fast Ethernet
Controller (FEC) and controller area network
(CAN) modules.
Security
As the need for connectivity increases in
embedded applications, a higher level of data
protection is also required. The MCF532x
Family offers an optional on-chip hardware
encryption module that is designed to support
a variety of encryption algorithms and
protocols while maintaining high overall
system performance.
68K/ColdFire Hardware and Software
Tools Support
A number of leading third-party development
tool vendors support a wide variety of
68K/ColdFire devices, making it possible to
use the same tool set across several devices
within the 68K/ColdFire portfolio. The Freescale
M5329EVB evaluation and development system
includes, at no extra cost*, CodeWarriorTM
Special Edition software. Professional tool
support is also available through ColdFire
third-party tool vendors. Open Source software
is also available for the M5329EVB, including
µCLinux and Nano-X, an open source graphical
user interface (GUI) development platform.
Because the MCF532x family of embedded
controllers supports a number of common
toolsets and shares many peripherals with other
68K/ColdFire devices, product developers can

ColdFire® Embedded Controllers
Fact Sheet
MCF537x Family
The Market Challenge
The need for connectivity and system
communication continues to be a steadily
growing trend. However, the challenge
most designers face is how to accommodate
the different methods of connectivity within
a system. There is a need to select a
processor with the right level of integration
and performance enhancement features to
accommodate system-to-system, in-system
and secure networked communication. There
is also a need for a roadmap with seamless
migration that includes an entire portfolio of
full-featured embedded processors with an
emphasis on connectivity. By introducing the
integrated USB host and integrated USB
On-The-Go (USB-OTG) modules to the
68K/ColdFire portfolio, the MCF537x family
of microprocessors offers a single chip
solution to address the growing need for
flexible communication within industrial
control systems.
Connectivity
To address the growing need for
system-to-system communications, the MCF537x
introduces the integrated USB host and integrated
USB-OTG module to the 68K/ColdFire portfolio
of features. These on-chip USB modules address
the need for system flexibility and enables support
for a rapidly growing number of applications where
direct communication is required between USB
devices such as printers, mass storage devices
and input devices. The MCF537x also includes
three on-chip universal asynchronous
receiver/transmitters (UARTs), common on a
majority of 68K/ColdFire devices, for direct
communication between computers, terminals and
other devices. Both the I2C and queued serial
peripheral interface (QSPI) peripherals are ideal
for supporting in-system communication to
connected peripherals. The MCF537x family
further accommodates flexibility in communication
by supporting networked communication via the
integrated 10/100 Ethernet controller. This
Integrated Fast Ethernet Controller (FEC) in
conjunction with the on-chip hardware encryption
module ensures secure connectivity with no
compromise to system performance.
Flexibility and Performance
The MCF537x offers many peripherals that
give designers the flexibility they need to
accommodate the multiple functions in their
systems. The MCF537x features an integrated
USB-OTG module that allows a system to serve
as either the master or a device in a given
application. The MCF537x also features an
integrated SDRAM controller that supports either
DDR or SDR memory for designers who wish to
modify their designs to accommodate one or the
other. Other advanced features include an
enhanced multiply-accumulate (eMAC) unit, which
handles DSP-like instructions. The MCF537x
family of devices also builds upon the competitive
high-performance legacy of the 68K/ColdFire
family, offering up to 211 (Dhrystone 2.1) MIPS
at 240 MHz of performance, making them
one of the highest performing microprocessors
in its class.
Security
As the need for networked connectivity increases
in embedded applications, a higher level of data
protection is required. The MCF537x family offers
an optional on-chip Hardware Encryption Module
to address this need. The integrated hardware
encryption module is designed to support a variety
of encryption algorithms and protocols while
maintaining overall system performance.
68K/ColdFire Hardware and Software
Tools Support
The ColdFire® embedded processor family benefits
from world-class support by several leading
third-party developers. These developers support a
wide variety of 68K/ColdFire devices, making it
possible to use the same tool set across several
devices in the ColdFire portfolio. In addition to
maintaining this similar tool support across the
entire ColdFire family, the MCF537x offers
peripherals that are similar across several ColdFire
devices, further enabling smooth migration within
the ColdFire device portfolio. The Freescale
M5373EVB evaluation and development system
includes, at no extra cost*, CodeWarriorTM Special
Edition software. Professional tool support is also
available to ColdFire third-party tool vendors.
Open source software is available for the MCF537x
family of microcontrollers.

comparison. The template is created from tiny
points called minutiae—based on the position of
end points and junctions of print ridges—
extracted from the fingerprint during enrollment,
and comparison of attributes are carried out
using complex algorithms during verification.
Total biometric revenues, including law
enforcement and large-scale public sector
usages, have grown rapidly, reaching an
estimated one billion dollars in 2005. Much of
this growth is attributable to PC/network access
and e-commerce, although large-scale public
sector deployments, such as airports, military
installations and other secure facilities, continue
to be an essential part of the industry.
Biometrics has moved from unconventional
specific technological applications to more
mainstream applications.

Overview
Biometric technologies automate the process of
using a physiological or behavioral characteristic
to prove someone’s identity. The chance of two
people—even identical twins—having the same
fingerprint is probably less than one in a billion.
Fingerprint comparison is the most widely used
method of biometric authentication—and the
most cost-effective.

Design Challenges
Corporations and institutions considering
biometric deployments must investigate
a range of questions including
costs, compatibility, scalability and
user acceptance.
Utilizing fingerprint biometrics can result in
many variations in system design, ranging
from the basic, stand-alone verification
system used for restricted access areas,
to the multi-unit networked system with a
central hub and many remote scanning
units, such as in an airport setting.
The stand-alone system would consist of
the fingerprint sensor, a microprocessor
running the algorithms, a user interface
and Flash for the template storage.

An ATM-style system would incorporate a
card reader, with the smart card becoming
the storage for the fingerprint template.
The networked remote scanning system
would add a network interface such as
USB or Ethernet to provide communication
from the scanner to the central hub.
A security device could be used by all
these systems to encrypt the data before
transmission or storage, allowing
increased security levels. The challenge
is to ensure that the basic solution is
versatile enough to be incorporated into
the more complex systems as well, with
minimal modifications for enhancements.
Freescale Solution
The MCF5249 ColdFire device interfaces
directly to the fingerprint sensor using the
integrated queued serial peripheral interface
(QSPI) module. Once the fingerprint scan is
complete, the data is transferred from the
sensor to the MCF5249 over the serial
peripheral interface (SPI), before the
algorithms are executed. The 96 KB of
internal SRAM allows increased performance
by running the algorithms in the internal
memory, while the enhanced
Multiply-Accumulate (eMAC) unit enables
the algorithms to be executed efficiently
and quickly. The MCF5249 supports external
SDRAM and Flash memory modules
through a glueless interface. The Flash is
used to store the fingerprint templates after
enrollment and is accessed for template
retrieval during verification. The low power
consumption of the MCF5249 allows it
to fit into power-critical fields such as in
battery-powered applications and does not
significantly add to the battery drain of the
product. The user display is based around an
LCD panel. The general-purpose input/output
(GPIO) available on the MCF5249 is used to
control the generation of messages on the
LCD. The display will inform the user that
enrollment is complete as well as display a

The I2C module on the MCF5249 provides a
glueless interface to the card reader in an
ATM-style system. This allows quick template
retrieval from the smart card and reduces user
delay. If enhanced data security is required,
then a security processor can be attached
via the bus interface providing data encryption
for storage or transmission purposes.
The network interface, i.e., Ethernet or USB,
is also attached to the bus interfaces allowing
communication between the remote unit and
the central hub when this is required.

Portable Internet Audio Products
Overview
The portable Internet audio market has exploded
with a wide range of products and formats.
These products create a whole host of
opportunities for consumers and challenges
for designers. Freescale Semiconductor’s
comprehensive hardware and system solutions
are engineered to help reduce overall system cost
and speed time-to-market. The portable Internet
audio devices vary widely depending on the
storage format. The availability of recordable
CD drives at consumer price points is giving a
new lease on life for the compact disc format.
The relatively low cost and high storage capacity
of blank CD media, together with its compatibility
with existing playback systems in use all over the
world, may make the CD the ultimate MP3 music
medium. A single read/write-able (R/W) CD
typically costs less than US$1 and can hold more
than 10 hours of music in MP3 form.
Compressed audio is written onto CDs as a file
on a CD-ROM, so MP3 CD players must be able
to read CD-R/W discs, perform CD-ROM
decode and file management and decode MP3,
Windows Media Audio (WMA), AAC and any
new formats that are derived.
Design Challenges
Standard compact disc (CD-DA) and
compressed audio (MP3, WMA, etc.) playback
digital audio systems share the requirement for
significant amounts of control processing as
well as digital audio signal processing. Control
processing includes file management, data
buffering, system control and user interface
control, while the MP3 decode algorithm
itself involves approximately 50 percent
MCF5249 BLOCK DIAGRAM
control-type functions and approximately
50 percent signal processing. Other
signal processing tasks include audio
effects processing (e.g., dynamic bass
boost) and digital volume control.
Typically these systems use separate
digital signal processor (DSP) and
microcontroller devices to perform the
signal processing and control tasks.
Clearly a more efficient, cost-effective
solution would be to implement both
tasks on a single microprocessor.
In addition, due to the portable nature of
these devices, power consumption is a
major issue. All devices in the solution
must have very low power consumption in
order to maximize the battery life of the
audio playback device.
Finally, multimedia formats and products
are evolving very quickly. Different digital
audio formats are being used in different
regions of the world and in different
products. For example, while MP3
(MPEG-1 Audio, Layer 3) is the audio
standard of the Internet, MPEG-4 AAC
(MP4) and WMA are also growing in
popularity. Due to these ever-changing
formats, an ideal solution could be
upgraded in the field.
Freescale Solution
Freescale’s ColdFire 32-bit microprocessor
is designed to provide a compact engine
for control code processing with its
variable-length RISC architecture; with the
addition of the enhanced Multiply-Accumulate
(eMAC) unit, the ColdFire microprocessor also
offers powerful digital signal processing ability.
For example, the MP3 decoder running
on the MCF5249 has been tested
as having 18 bits* of accuracy compared to
the ISO floating point standard implementation,
equivalent to a signal-to-noise ratio
of 108 dB*. In addition, the MP3 decoder
requires just 19 MHz* of CPU bandwidth
on this device.
With its 32-bit data paths and 48-bit
accumulators, the ColdFire architecture
with eMAC is capable of extremely efficient
processing of certain audio algorithms.
The MCF5249 has been designed with
advanced ColdFire audio peripherals which
include IIS-compatible serial ports and an
IEC958/SPDIF transceiver. The on-chip

time-division multiplexing (TDM) bus is
designed to allow signals to be routed
easily between the peripherals and the CPU.
Because external audio interface devices are
not required, these audio peripherals help
provide lower system costs. In addition,
standard audio software modules, such as
MP3 and WMA decoders, are available for
customers with the proper licensing for a
small fee.

Local Medical Monitoring Gateway
MCF5275 BLOCK DIAGRAM
Overview
Medical personnel today have a wider variety of
patient information sources than ever before, yet
the volume of information can be an impediment if
the data is not interconnected, analyzed, recorded
and responded to—especially in the event of an
emergency. Thus, a system becomes necessary
to allow medical personnel to monitor and
interface local frontier-connected equipment both
locally and from a central basestation.
In this example, local bedside health care-related
equipment, such as respirators, heart monitors
and medicine dosage controllers, from several
hospital rooms can be securely and remotely
monitored by a central basestation. This is made
possible by connecting the local bedside medical
equipment to an MCF5275 ColdFire®
microprocessor-based local medical monitoring
gateway via Ethernet or, in the case of a legacy
medical device that is not equipped with Ethernet,
via a serial RS-232 port. The gateway in each
room is wired to a central router, which is
connected to the central basestation.

Automated Gas Pumping Station
and Automatic Teller Machine (ATM)
Overview
Gasoline pumps have become information
appliances. In addition to allowing customers
to fuel their cars and pay for gasoline at the
pump, gasoline pumps now offer merchandising
opportunities for the station owners and function
as Web-based information portals. Competitive
pressures are requiring stations to monitor and
control their gas pumps remotely, instead of
having personnel on-site. Pumps now
contain touch screens or LCD displays with
keypads, and they also feature speakers,
barcode scanners, radio frequency
identification (RFID) systems, cash
acceptors and receipt-printing equipment.
Key Benefits
> The MCF547x processor family delivers
comprehensive, high-level control for a
next-generation automated gas pump/ATM
with a single device.
> There is significant design flexibility offered by
the multiple communications interfaces
featured on the MCF547x devices.
> The optional encryption accelerator within the
MCF547x devices allows financial information
and customer-specific marketing data to be
collected with enhanced security and
distributed via any personal area network
(PAN), local area network (LAN) or wide area
network (WAN) interface, without significantly
degrading system performance.

the MCF547x devices with different
PCI peripherals.
> The MCF547x device’s system
architecture enables high data
throughput for communicationsintensive peripherals included in
a gateway application.
> Hardware-accelerated encryption
within the MCF547x devices helps
to ensure secure transmission of data
through the gateway.
Design Challenges
The key requirements of a microprocessor
for the home entertainment gateway
application are connectivity and

Fieldbus Controller/Gateway
Overview
Fieldbus controllers take the measurements
and perform the actions critical to manufacturing
and materials processing. A fieldbus gateway
provides communication to factory floor and
process control devices that are connected via
a large variety of popular protocols. Ethernet is
making rapid inroads into areas formerly covered
by older serial protocols.
Along with this physical layer change, access
via TCP/IP has become increasingly important to
enable enterprise-wide integration. Controllers
are evolving as well, taking over central control
room tasks through distributed processing
schemes. All of these changes are driving a
new level of integration in microprocessors
for industrial applications.
Key Benefits
> The MCF548x devices are particularly well
suited for interfacing legacy fieldbuses such
as CAN, MODBUS and PROFIBUS with
newer technologies such as wired and
wireless Ethernet.
> Multiple Ethernet interfaces on the MCF548x
devices allow straightforward separation of
public and private data streams for an
industrial application.
