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.
Freescale’s CodeWarrior Development Studio for Microcontrollers v10.4 is a new full product release with major enhancements including C++ support for DSC devices, 64-bit floating point support for S12Z devices and MQX-Lite - a lightweight kernel for Kinetis L and K MCU families
Optimize body networking systems with increased intelligence of CAN termination nodes or LIN nodes provided by the highly-integrated S12 MagniV S12ZVC and S12ZVL MCU families. These devices help designers achieve the smallest possible CAN/LIN nodes and help reduce printed circuit board sizes by as much as 30 percent.
