The MPC5748G and MPC5746C microcontrollers are members of a 32-bit microcontroller family built on the Power Architecture® technology. This family of devices is designed to address a wide variety of automotive applications including but not limited to high end gateway, combined body controller and gateway, central body, vehicle body controllers, smart junction box and front module applications.
The purpose of this document is to describe hardware design considerations when developing hardware for the MPC5748G microcontrollers but is also mostly valid for the MPC5746C device. It will cover topics such as voltage regulator and power considerations, clock generation, decoupling, etc. Detailed reference design schematics and descriptions of the main components, as well as some general hardware recommendations are provided within this document.
