NXP Expands Kinetis E Range with Touch Operation
Kinetis E Micros are now available with 32 KB to 256 KB Flash Program Memory
NXP Semiconductors has expanded the Kinetis E range of microcontrollers. The 5V KE1xZ family, based on the Arm® Cortex®-M0+ core, enables embedded control systems in harsh electrical environments with an integrated CAN controller and capacitive touch from 32KB flash.
Designed for a wide range of industrial applications, the KE1xZ family offers rich mixed-signal integration across a range of compact memory variants with an integrated CAN controller for reliable, high-speed communication. The 1-Msps ADC and FlexTimer modules, combined with NXP’s Freemaster software tools library and Motor Control Application Tuning plugin (MCAT) enable Brushless DC (BLDC) and other motor-control systems.
NXP’s KE1xZ MCU family offers advanced noise immunity, water-tolerant touch and low-power wake-on-touch operation, essential features for the strict electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) standards of the industrial and home appliance markets. NXP’s touch IP, combined with proven software and tools enable a high level of stability, accuracy and ease of use, with continued responsiveness and functionality through wet conditions and can sustain 10V in conducted noise, in alignment with International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 6100-4-6 test level 3.
Additional Features include:
- Internal 48Mhz reference clock with 1% accuracy over full range
- Boot ROM with built-in bootloader and 128-bit unique device identifier (UID)
- ADC self-calibration feature
- Flash Access Control
- Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) generator module
- Internal watchdog with independent clock source and external watchdog monitor
- On-chip clock loss monitoring
- IEC 60730 Class B safety certification
