Our miriac® System-on-Modules (SoMs) with NXP® PowerQUICC® III processors have been available since 2007. Thanks to our longevity support of at least 15 years, we have been able to deliver these modules without any major design changes or other restrictions until today. But now, NXP® has officially discontinued this processor.
Long-term availability beyond discontinued processors
However, there are still stocks of the PowerQUICC® III processors MPX8540 and MPX8548 – initially manufactured by Freescale and then by NXP® until the end of 2021 – which enables us to supply batches of these modules even after the official discontinuation by NXP®. So, for the next few years, there’s no need for you to worry. Though, be sure to talk to us now about your project durations. Only then can we guarantee our continued support for you. We will work with you to develop a project plan and, if necessary, also a strategy for long-term stockpiling. We will also advise whether a migration to our NXP® QorIQ® PowerPC processor based modules such as the miriac® MPX-T1042 SoM or the miriac® MPX-T1024 SoM makes sense, or whether an alternative solution should be considered.

End-to-end migration support for discontinued processors
MicroSys provides OEMs with full end-to-end support for the migration of NXP® PowerQUICC® III designs – from requirements engineering for the new (retrofit) carrier board and system to porting the OEM application to the new platform. In cases where the successor modules do not sufficiently meet your requirements, MicroSys also advises on the selection of other alternatives. So, do not hesitate to contact us directly. We will be happy to address your specific questions and accompany you throughout the entire life cycle of your new system design. With more than 30 years of migration experience in embedded industries, our experts have the skills to handle the challenges of re-designs sustainably and efficiently, even beyond the discontinuation of long-term available components. miriac® System-on-Modules fully support this approach, as they can be used to significantly extend the return-on-investment in the development of customer-specific carrier boards and systems, thereby making it more sustainable.
