The Sandpoint is a reference platform designed by Motorola to help people develop hardware and software around various PowerPC processors. The basic system is an ATX form-factor motherboard with standard PC devices (IDE, floppy, serial, parallel), 4 PCI slots, and a mezzanine slot to which several different processor modules may be attached.
The main focus of this port is now on MPC824x based consumer NAS (Network Attached Storage) systems, while the original evaluation boards are still supported.
