Austin, TX--July 24, 1996--Motorola's High Performance Embedded Systems Division announced that they have signed a non-exclusive agreement with Hewlett-Packard Co.'s Integrated Circuit business Division to license Motorola's 68000, 68020, 68030, and ColdFire variable-length RISC microprocessor cores.
HP has used, and will be able to continue to use, these microprocessor cores to build integrated products such as certain computer peripherals.
The licensing agreement provides a second source of supply for microprocessor components in a large number of HP's products. In addition, the agreement allows HP to build or modify products as needed to meet internal design requirements.
The ColdFire product family includes the MCF5102, the first in the ColdFire family; the MCF5202, which combines a ColdFire core with an integrated 2 kbyte unified cache; and the MCF5206, which includes a DRAM controller, chip selects, and interrupt controller, timer, DUART, parallel port, and Mbus interface.
