Shenzhen, ChinaFreescale Semiconductor has added 30 highly integrated microcontrollers (MCUs) to its expanding 8-bit S08 portfolio for consumer, industrial and automotive applications.
These latest MCUs provide embedded designers with a wider choice of cost-effective 8-bit options supporting 5V operation, advanced motor control and an extended range of peripherals, from USB to LIN, to meet their application needs.
In the S08JM60 family of 8-bit USB MCUs, there are eight devices that feature a full-speed USB device controller, which enables customers to upgrade and standardize serial communications quickly. The S08JM60 family offers a 24MHz bus frequency along with up to 60KB of flash memory and a 12-channel, 12-bit A/D converter. The devices also include an integrated USB transceiver to help customers save cost, development time and board space by eliminating off-chip components.
Featuring 12 devices, the MC9S08SH8/4 family brings increased flexibility and a wide breadth of package offerings to Freescale's 5V low-end 8-bit MCU portfolio. The S08SH controllers are Freescale's first low-pin-count S08 devices with a 20 MHz internal clock source (ICS). They also include a useful ganged output capability that enables developers to achieve higher current drive by toggling multiple pins using one bit.
The S08SG family includes four 8-bit MCUs designed for local interconnect network (LIN) slave, general market and space-constrained automotive applications. The MC9S08SG core operates at up to 40 MHz, stretching the boundaries of 8-bit performance into the range of 16-bit MCUs. The S08SG family offers on-chip emulation/debug that helps reduce development time by enabling developers to make software changes in real-time.
Integrating Freescale's industry-leading 0.25µ flash technology, the MC9S08AC16 family includes six devices that offer an upward migration path to MC9S08AW-based applications requiring higher performance, enhanced peripherals, additional memory and improved system security.
The MC9S08AC16 adds a third timer PWM module (TPM), giving designers added clocking flexibility. Improvements to the serial communications interface (SCI) satisfy the designer's need for integrated LIN functionality. The addition of a 1 kHz oscillator to the COP/watchdog timer provides an additional two timeout options, which helps enhance system security.
Pricing: Ranges from 96 cents to $2.90 each in 10,000-unit quantities.
Availability: Freescale's JM, SH, SG and AC family devices are available today.
