AUSTIN, Texas - Nov. 10, 2003 - Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), has developed the 9S12D32, 9S12DP512 and 9S12C32 16-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) for designers of automotive applications. These devices extend Motorola's existing HCS12D-family at both ends of the spectrum, from 32KB to 512KB, and complement it with the introduction of a compatible, low-cost, low-pin-count family of derivatives.

With the introduction of these new devices, the HCS12 family now totals more than 50 derivatives giving designers flexibility to choose between various memory and peripheral options for scalable system designs based around a common core.

Expanding 16-bit Options for the Automotive Industry
The 9S12D32 and 9S12DP512 devices are part of Motorola's HCS12 16-bit family, used by leading automotive designers around the world. The devices offer pin-compatibility and greater flash memory options of 32K bytes to 512K bytes respectively.

The 9S12C32 is the first low pin count device in the automotive HCS12 C-family. It delivers 16-bit performance at price levels previously associated with 8-bit MCUs.

The three new HCS12 devices offer 25 MHz performance, code efficiency, on-chip debugging capability and code compatibility with Motorola's existing 68HC11and 68HC12 architectures. With capabilities like extended temperature, Motorola-scalable Controller Area Network (msCAN) configuration and variable flash memory options, the 9S12 devices are well suited for body control, occupant safety and other automotive applications. The devices also include optimized power consumption through a variety of efficient STOP and WAIT modes.

Product Features: 9S12D32 and 9S12DP512
The 9S12D32 and 9S12DP512 MCUs include these features:
- 25 MHz HCS12 core
- From 32KB to 512KB third-generation flash memory, respectively
- From 1K bytes to 4K bytes EEPROM (byte-erasable)
- From 2K bytes to 14K bytes of RAM
- One I2C communication port (IIC)
- Low electromagnetic emissions and RF noise susceptibility
- Minus 40 to 125 degrees Celsius extended operating temperatures
- Development tool kit

Specific 9S12D32 features include: 59 general-purpose input/output (I/O), one msCAN and an 80 quad flat pack (QFP). Specific 9S12DP512 features include: 91 general-purpose I/O, five msCANs and a 112 LQFP.

Product Features: 9S12C32
The 9S12C32 device features include:
- 25 MHz HCS12 core at 5.0 volts
- 16 MHz HCS12 core at 3.0 volts
- 32 KB third-generation flash memory
- From 2K bytes of RAM
- Low electromagnetic emissions and RF noise susceptibility
- Minus 40 to 125 degrees Celsius extended operating temperatures
- Development tool kit

Other 9S12C32 features include: a lower operating supply voltage (down to 3.0 volts) to support a wider range of embedded applications; 19, 33, or 58 general-purpose I/O, one msCAN; and a choice of 48 low-profile quad flat packs (LQFPs), 52 LQFPs, or 80 QFPs.

These HCS12 devices feature Motorola's third-generation flash memory technology, offering fast programming times - 16 bits in as low as 20 microseconds - flexible block protection and security features to help guard customers' intellectual property contained in software code. All of Motorola's flash MCUs are in-circuit and in-application programmable and designed to give designers the flexibility to program late in the manufacturing cycle and enable remote field upgrades.

Supporting HCS12 Family Development
The HCS12 MCUs' Background Debug™ Mode (BDM) uses a single-pin interface and is engineered to help enable real-time, non-intrusive, in-circuit emulation without traditional emulator limitations related to speed, voltage, capacitance or mechanical interfaces. Embedded system design engineers may emulate a system in real time while viewing and modifying memory. This allows system performance tuning by monitoring results and changing parameters.

To ease application development, evaluation and debug, Motorola offers a number of tools, such as simple, cost effective BDM emulators, kits for code development and evaluation and stand-alone programmers. HCS12 development tools include Metrowerks CodeWarrior™ Integrated Development Environment for HCS12, BDM Multilink and evaluation boards, all of which can help designers design, compile, assemble and debug new applications.

Customers also can access an extensive library of online tools and information via the Motorola Web site. Aisys, Inc. offers a free, downloadable auto code generator; Motorola and third-party hardware and software vendors offer various no cost high-quality development tools for the 9S12 and all Motorola MCU families.
