Kinetis ARM® Cortex™-M4 Microcontrollers

Freescale Kinetis ARM Cortex-M4 Microcontrollers

32-bit Kinetis MCUs represent the most scalable portfolio of ARM® Cortex™-M4 MCUs in the industry. The first phase of the portfolio consists of five MCU families with over 200 pin-, peripheral- and software compatible devices with outstanding performance, memory and feature scalability. Enabled by innovative 90nm Thin Film Storage (TFS) flash technology with unique FlexMemory (configurable embedded EEPROM), Kinetis features the latest low-power innovations and high performance, high precision mixed-signal capability. Kinetis MCUs are supported by a market-leading enablement bundle from Freescale and ARM 3rd party ecosystem partners.

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

The Kinetis L series MCUs 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 MCUs, providing a scalable migration path to more performance, memory and feature integration.

The Kinetis L Series MCUs are Energy-Efficient Product Solutions by Freescale.
