16-bit Microcontrollers

Freescale has a wide range of 16-bit products to offer automotive and industrial designers. S12 and S12X MCUs provide high-performance 16-bit control functionality. 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. S12 MagniV mixed-signal MCUs extend the S12 portfolio and offer the right blend of digital programmability and high precision analog in highly-integrated packages. 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.
