Type-N Carrier 

The carrier with PQ II pro, III processor card for networking application


(Above is the picture for Type-N Carrier plus processor card)


The Type-N Carrier serves as a generic I/O platform for PowerQUICC II Pro and III family processor cards. It provides standard connectors such as 3.3 V 32-bit PCI slots, serial port, Ethernet connector, for testing and developing the functionality of different interfaces of MPC83xx and MPC85XX devices. Combined with reusable PowerPC processor card, Type-N carrier  can be used for networking device application.
