Part Numbering - Freescale MCF5233CVM150J

What does the suffix J call out in Freescale part number like MCF5233CVM150J (DK# MCF5233CVM150J-ND)?

The “J” is a fit/form/function replacement for the same number without the “J” suffix. The new part was needed because of a ruling by the US International Trade Commission.

From the Freescale website - for the part without the J suffix. “Because of an order from the United States International Trade Commission, BGA-packaged product lines and part numbers indicated here currently are not available from Freescale for import or sale in the United States prior to September 2010” More info is available at
