Kinetis L Series MCUs

Ultra-Low Power MCUs based on ARM® Cortex®-M0+ Cores

Kinetis L Series MCUs
Based on ARM® Cortex®-M0+ Cores

Freescale’s Kinetis L series MCUs combine the exceptional energy-efficiency and ease-of-use of the ARM® Cortex®-M0+ processor core with the performance, peripheral sets, enablement and scalability of the Kinetis 32-bit MCU portfolio.

The Kinetis L series frees power-critical designs from 8- and 16-bit MCU limitations by combining excellent dynamic and stop currents with superior processing performance, a broad selection of on-chip flash memory densities and extensive analog, connectivity and HMI peripheral options. Kinetis L series MCUs are also hardware and software compatible with the ARM Cortex-M4-based Kinetis K series, providing a scalable migration path to more performance, memory and feature integration.

Features

  • Up to 48 MHz performance
  • 8-256 KB Flash
  • Up to 32 KB RAM
  • Low-power timers and smart peripherals

Kinetis KL0x Entry-Level MCUs

The Kinetis KL0x MCU family is the entry point into the Kinetis L series based on the ARM® Cortex®-M0+ processor. The Kinetis KL0x MCU family provides a bridge for 8-bit customers migrating into the MCU portfolio and is software and tool compatible with all other Kinetis L series MCUs.
