Our portfolio of 8-bit MCUs provides a wide ranges of low-power, highly-functional solutions for industrial, consumer and automotive markets. From tiny RS08 devices to highly functional S08 controllers with LCD interfaces to ultra-low-power Flexis™ S08 MCUs that offer a connection point in the Controller Continuum to advanced 32-bit solutions, Freescale has the right 8-bit solutions for your applications.
Freescale S12 and S12X MCUs provide high-performance 16-bit control for automotive and industrial applications. The S12X MCUs feature the innovative XGATE module, designed specifically to handle interrupt events without CPU intervention. As a result, the S12X controller has the high-performance capabilities you would normally expect of a 32-bit controller. The 16-bit portfolio also includes a large family of digital signal controllers (DSCs), which combine microcontroller functionality with DSP performance. They are particularly well-suited for advanced motor control applications.
Freescale DSC technology's combination of DSP speed with MCU control makes it the ideal solution for industrial control, motion control, home appliances, general purpose inverters, smart sensors, advanced lighting, fire and security systems, switched-mode power supply power management, and medical monitoring applications. These flexible 16-bit devices are particularly well suited for electric motor control and have significantly impacted the home appliance market, spawning quieter and more energy efficient washing machines and dishwashers, for example.
Power Architecture is the world's leading architecture for automotive powertrain control, body electronics, safety and chassis, and instrument cluster applications.
